This 30-Ton Robot Could Help Scientists Produce the Crops of the Future | WSJ

Arizona has what researchers call “the climate of tomorrow, today.” Scientists are using a 30-ton robotic field scanner in the state to study plant genetics and hopefully develop stress-resilient crops. Photo: Jesse Rieser for The Wall Street Journal

    Some real junk science, based on long time failed predictions.
    And of course some Bill & Melinda Gates foundation meddling.

    I was so excited to learn how the plant robot is helping the farmers of today in Arizona help save the future of the Unied States of America's plant population. I like your content. I love watching your videos. Please continue to upload more helpful/useful content on your channel.

    Only corporations are going to afford this.

    All this work is pretty much a complete waste of time. If the earth warms a few degrees it will make farming further north possible. There will be more than enough new areas of farmable land that can grow the crops we already have. Better to put these resources to other actual problems.

    I dig this hopefully things work out for the project, especially since we have leaders that are slow to accept improving the environment and being more sustainable.

    We must stop the climate catastrophism Mafia!!!!! Human-caused temperature increase is a FRAUD!!!!!. CO2 (the gas of LIFE AND PHOTOSYNTHESIS) IS GOOD, VERY GOOD. POLLUTION IS BAD.

    Nothing specific to show just hyperbole. Collecting 15K images, spending so much free money, use woke words like sustainable, climate change, Machine learning etc & that's it? What are these guys doing actually? Seems like a waste of money for leftist liberal ideas. Tell me I am wrong?

    How about the seeds? Not how you plant them but what are you planting! We don’t want GMO
