Affordable solution to the labor shortage in the agricultural industry moved ahead today with AIS and AgriNomix partnership

BURNABY, BCAdvanced Intelligent Systems (AIS), a leading custom robotics company creating affordable, autonomous robotic solutions to solve labor shortage problems in agriculture, announced today it has partnered with AgriNomix, the leader in horticulture automation for the North American market. AIS will work with AgriNomix to create solutions for nurseries and greenhouses faced with labor intensive tasks, as AIS’ mobile, autonomous robot provides nurseries and growers experiencing acute labor challenges with innovative and cost-efficient automation solutions.

“We are very excited to partner with AgriNomix to provide a solution for nursery and greenhouse growers to make their operations more efficient and productive with BigTop – our unique autonomous robot,” said Afshin Doust, CEO of AIS.

“Our client base is desperate to fill open headcount. They just can’t find people for these labor-intensive job openings. AIS is laser focused on providing practical, cost effective robotics that can be put to work in the very near term to fill a gap that will only grow,” said Robert Lando, Founder and President of AgriNomix.

AIS is currently demonstrating BigTop, at Cultivate’19, taking place in Columbus, Ohio through July 16.  Cultivate’19 is North America’s leading trade show for the horticulture industry. 

At Cultivate’19, AIS is offering demonstrations of the BigTop autonomous robot at AgriNomix Booth #2047 as well as demonstrating another prototype for the first time: the “pruner” that can trim plants with its “unique arm” that expands BigTop’s features. 

The need for labor in the horticulture industry has been steadily climbing, however, the industry is facing a severe labor shortage.
