It takes some basic programming work to get the Farmbot to operate. There’s a few videos that show exactly how to set everything up. It will take approximately 8 hours to 16 hours of use on the software to understand how everything interacts and how to program it. Once you’re up and running it becomes very easy and the Farmbot takes care of most operating activity. Here’s a fair disclosure… I will warn you that the smart vision weeding software doesn’t work quite as well as in the videos. It still has some kinks to be ironed out and the Farmbot team is working on it.
It will be a great father and son project. There are Farmbots all over the world now you can likely talk to someone who has done it before you and test it out for yourself.
