Ecorobotix’s ARA Smart Sprayer Enters the US Market

The First and Only Ultra-High Precision Smart Sprayer - A “Game Changer” for Sustainable Agriculture

Ecorobotix, the pioneering Swiss agtech and AI software company, is thrilled to announce the introduction of its ground-breaking ARA to the United States. ARA's unique technology is set to transform agriculture with its advanced UHP-Sprayer™ and Plant-by-Plant™ AI-based software solution.


ARA was launched in 2021 by Ecorobotix in Switzerland and has since grown its success in 13 European countries and most recently expanded geographically to Canada and South America.

What makes ARA unique?

ARA stands apart from its competition due to its unique combination of Ecorobotix's advanced UHP-Spray-Technology™ and the AI-driven Plant-by-Plant™ software. In less than 250 milliseconds, this dynamic system "scans" the field, captures real-time imagery, identifies the specified crops or weeds the farmer has chosen to treat, and executes a remarkably precise spray precision of 2.4 by 2.4 inches, all while minimizing drift.

ARA's primary application currently focuses on targeted herbicide treatments in vegetable fields, showcasing reduced phytotoxicity and enhanced overall crop yields. This translates to substantial profit increases for farmers while reducing herbicide volumes by an impressive 70-95%. Beyond herbicides, ARA's versatility extends to the application of liquid fertilizers, growth treatments, insecticides, and pesticides, making its combination of precision & versatility unique in the market.

First steps in America

Ecorobotix's expansion into the US market has been marked by the establishment of its US subsidiary, Ecorobotix Inc., and its membership in the esteemed Western Growers Association (WGA) in California. The ARA was officially on display for the first time in the US at the 2023 Farm Tech Days in Wisconsin in cooperation with Edney Distributing and will be shown at the Farm Progress Show in Illinois. Ecorobotix Inc. is excited to make its inaugural appearance at FIRA in Salinas, California this September, with field demonstrations of its ARA.

"Expanding to the US is a significant milestone for our company. We are eager to witness our innovative technology making a positive impact on agriculture worldwide."

X-Rail: reliability and resistance to environmental impurities

Rollon's X-Rail linear rails are a reliable solution in environments susceptible to impurities. Equipped with rolling elements with shaped and flat raceways, they are available in several versions: galvanized, nitrided or stainless-steel sheet metal. The latter version ensures total corrosion resistance, which is critical for hostile environments such as those found in vertical farming. Particularly innovative is the T + U configuration of the X-Rail linear rails, which can compensate for the parallelism errors of mounting surfaces. This simplifies installation and reduces costs.
