Are robots replacing farmers? Machines could take over jobs of humans in agricultural industryRobots bein

g introduced into the agricultural industry could replace the need for human farmers - with a single machine looking after massive areas of land. The new farmbots are also thought to be cheaper than hiring manpower, as labour costs in agriculture have soared. One farm that is already benefiting greatly from the assistance of robots is Suplejack Downs, a cattle ranch in the Australian Outback. The farm is located in the North Territory, and is 13 hours from the nearest town, Alice Springs. The farmbot could remove the need for human labour (Image: YouTube/Dan Nel
