AutoNxt Automation, founded in 2016, aims to revolutionize the agricultural landscape by bringing their electric and autonomous (self-driving) tractor to the market soon. India’s agriculture has provided millions of people with a living and fed a sizable population for millennia. But the problems posed by climate change and the rising demand for food necessitate a revolution in farming methods. To address the rising need for food, farmers are now using new and ecological techniques like greenhouse agriculture. The development of polyhouse farming has revolutionized the field of sustainable and effective agriculture.
