Hi there, I wanna give many thanks to Rory, the founder of the Farmbot forum, for putting all these works open-source.
Currently, I have a single span tunnel greenhouse. The plantation area is about 8m X 120m - 960m2.
I want to create a bigger Farmbot version in my greenhouse to grow baby spinach organically. In addition to the existing component on the Farmbot, I wish to develop a “pellet injector” that could fertilize chicken manure in pellet form, and a adaptor tool that could work compatibly with my existing spinach harvester.
I will need the height of the Farmbot to be over 1.8m as I need to run my bobcat in for regular tillage and bed making.
My questions are should I consider making multiple smaller Farmbots, or should I build one bigger unit? What is efficiency of one control arm? Could one single unit handle all the tasks?
I will try to blog everything that I do with the Farmbot. Let me know if anyone could help me with the initial planning like the materials for the rail system in a bigger system.
