Root AI

Join the future of farming. We believe tomorrow’s farms won’t look like the endless outdoor crop rows we remember and that the security and quality of our food will no longer be limited by an increasingly unpredictable climate or access to land. Instead, hyper efficient indoor farms will grow delicious and chemical free produce. At Root, we are on a mission to create the intelligent robots that will help growers build the farms of the future.
