I'm looking into farming because I'm a bit perplexed as to why we can fully automate cars and shit but not farms. I'm interested in hearing thoughts on ways this could be done and whether or not it's worth doing. It's more of a thought experiment, but it's been on my mind and I'm interested in perhaps making a model for it. With buildings and climate control and vertical farming I'm currently thinking about if you had layers of grains like wheat could you not have a tractor blade at the end and have it roll down the tracks then load off that into a conveyor belt and process it? What other crops do you think would work well with this? I'm also thinking about cranberries since you could grow them then get ready to harvest and flood the area and have the machine go over it? Currently, I'm just brainstorming and with covid, I can't go to a farm and just look at what they do and sifting through YouTube videos that explain well how tractor blades work without having to learn how some random guys life is growing and what model of tractor and jazz that I am bored by. I guess what I'm asking is for a conversation to be started that would be better than searching for vague things when I have something specific in mind and don't feel like watching fifty videos for the specific piece of information I want. Is anyone interested in showing me how your farms are set up? I'm no expert and I would love the input!
