FarmBot's 3-axis gantry can accommodate and control 3rd party sensors such as depth mapping cameras for photogrammetry or hyperspectral imagers for automated phenotyping.
Features and Functions
FarmBot Genesis XL covers an area 18m2 in size - enough to grow over 1,500 plants concurrently up to 100mm in diameter. If swappable growing trays or a conveyor system are used, the number of plants can be substantially increased.
Our easy to use web app allows researchers to create custom sequences for data acquisition, plant manipulation, watering, and more - all performed precisely on schedule day or night.

FarmBot is 100% Open-Source
This means that all of the CAD models, schematics, bill of materials, and more are freely available for everyone to view, copy, edit, and improve upon.
This opens up a world of opportunities for students to explore fields like coding, makers to modify their FarmBot with 3D printing, and scientists to take full advantage of the platform.
Unlimited experimental permutations
Within the FarmBot web app you can create an unlimited number of plant groups, implement custom naming conventions, and precisely control how each group is taken care of from the seed depth to the watering regimen.
Data acquisition can be scheduled at any interval, unlocking opportunities for collecting more data points and at odd hours - freeing researchers from labor intensive tasks and the potential for error.DEMO THE APP
Use custom code and hardware to unlock FarmBot's full potential
FarmBot is not a standalone product – it is a general purpose agricultural platform that can be modified and extended to meet your unique needs.
With our extensive resources, you can learn to build custom tools for the Genesis UTM, add additional powered peripherals, get and process data from 3rd party APIs, and more.
Systematically control grow lights, heaters, and fans in your greenhouse. Or, develop a new tool to interface with the UTM. You can do all of that and more using our open-source CAD models and mod-friendly electronics.

The LUA command allows you to insert custom code snippets directly into FarmBot sequences. Included are helpers for http requests, using persistent environment variables, encoding and decoding JSON, and controlling FarmBot's hardware.
