Powered by the sun, Shropshire Petals' FarmDroid FD20 flower robot will spend its time seeding and then weeding Delphiniums, removing the requirement for the hours of manual weeding usually required.
FarmDroid has been awarded a Silver Award for Innovation by The Royal Highland and Agricultural of Scotland (RHASS) ahead of its annual show.
