Safety in agriculture is something that can never be talked about enough. Sometimes, it seems like we hear another news story of a farmer or rancher getting hurt every day. Father son duo, Chad and Ben Johnson, are starting the conversation, joining this episode of the FarmBits podcast as CEO and CIO of Grain Weevil, to discuss their new advancements with robotics in grain storage. After a challenge was presented to them by a family friend, they were driven to create a startup to prevent farmers from having to deal with the danger of entering grain bins. Continuing on with our robotics and automation in agriculture series, this episode shows how autonomy and robotics can minimize the risk that farmers encounter day to day. Join our hosts, Taylor and Kelsey, on this episode to learn more about developing robotic solutions for farming operations and how this product could benefit your own operation.
