robot-brent-wareThere’s always work to be done on the farm. But often, it’s the same work -- day after day. Parts of the job must feel a bit like an assembly line. Wouldn't it be great if you could just get a robot to do it? That might not be so far off. Harvest Public Media's Jeremy Bernfeld explains... in part two of our week-long series “Farmer of the Future.”


This is part two of a five-part series called "Farmer of the Future" on Kansas Public Radio. This series is part of a reporting project called Harvest Public Media. Learn more at
