50% Grant for Robotic and Automated Equipment

Added 29/01/2024

Part of the Farming Investment Fund, the Improving Farm Productivity grant is open to farmers, growers and related contractors.

It will pay for capital items to improve farm and horticulture productivity through: 

  • the use of robotic and automated equipment and systems to aid crop and livestock production.
The OPICO FarmDroid fully automated robotic seeding and mechanical weeding robot is ideally suited to the grant application, and FarmDroid specialist Harvey Sherwin would be pleased to assist you with information on the product to assist in your grant application process. The FarmDroid has recently been enhanced with the option of 3 or 4 wheel drive versions, as well as the addition of the option of combining mechanical weeding with micro-dose spraying of herbicides where required and to suit all eventualities. 

For robotic and automated equipment, the minimum grant available is £25,000 and the maximum grant available is £500,000. The grant will now cover up to 50% of the cost.

The grant is open to horticultural and farm businesses. Contractors from those sectors are eligible to apply for grants towards the purchase of robotic and automated equipment.
