25 robots in the field at World FIRA 2023: the world's largest demo and exhibition area for autonomous agricultural solutions

Robots and autonomous solutions for a more resilient agriculture have now entered the farms. For its 7th edition, the World FIRA is getting a makeover and inviting industry players into the fields, around 20 robot demos on 2 hectares of cultivated plots. See you from February 7 to 9, 2023 at the Agrobiopole, the campus of excellence for the agri-agro sector in Toulouse area - France.
Don't miss: the famous YouTuber “Thierry Agriculteur d'Aujourd'hui” will set up his TV set on February 8, followed by a "guinguette" evening with #CoFarmingTour.

Robots with multiple applications

The FR CUMA Occitanie, the major machinery cooperative in France, is the privileged partner of this renewed World FIRA. CUMA will operate the part of the demos in open field, in order to propose cultivated plots, in adequacy with the functionalities of the robots manufacturers:

  • Mechanical weeding, laser weeding and vineyards weeding
  • Harvesting
  • Spraying
  • Auger
  • Load carrier
  • Recognition…

Showcase of robots and autonomous agricultural solutions present at World FIRA 2023
