How large a bed?

How large a bed can the current system handle?

What is the limiting factor - speed of planting, speed of weeding, memory, accuracy over long distances, something else? What problem overwhelms the system most readily as it scales?

Search this forum for “scale” to find many, many discussions on this topic.
