In a world where everything is turning robotic, the farming industry is no exception.

Grand Farm held its autonomous nation conference on Thursday in Horace which welcomed in tech representatives and Sen. John Hoeven.

The group discussed autonomy in everything from space to weaponry and farming.

Craig Rupp, the CEO of Sabanto, spoke at the event. Sabanto is working to bring autonomous farming to North Dakota.

Rupp says his technology will be important in adapting the industry.

“1/3 of the U.S. farmers are over the age of 65. Twenty years from now, the entire industry of agriculture is going to change drastically, and who is going to do the fieldwork?” said Rupp.

Rupp says his tractors are already operating in seven states — and will soon have an eight to call home.
