Stout Industrial Technology talks about their FIRA experience

Partner since the first edition of FIRA USA, Stout Industrial Technology supports and is at the front row of each edition. So we asked Quincie Gourley, the Communication Manager of Stout Industrial Technology, to tell us more about their last participation.

Stout is an artificial intelligence company building and selling smart farming implements that use machine vision, a neural network and proprietary AI model to automate labor-intensive field work like weeding. Founded in 2019, Stout has machines with thousands of hours on them in the US and Europe. Each machine cultivates up to 2 acres per hour, removing 25-30 people from the field.

FIRA | What does automation in agriculture mean to you?

QG | Automation in agriculture, to Stout Industrial Technologies, represents giving farmers and growers a solution to a current problem or issue they are facing in their day to day farming practices. Farmers face numerous challenges, including labor shortages, increasing operational costs, and the need to improve crop yields while maintaining environmental stewardship. Our Smart Cultivator address these challenges by providing reliable, accurate, and easy-to-use technology that automates labor-intensive tasks such as weeding and cultivation.

Existing solutions like our Smart Cultivator, True Vision technology, and Smart Rate Fertilizer exemplify the practical application of AI in agriculture. These tools help farmers identify and manage weeds more effectively, leading to healthier crops and better yields. Automation in agriculture is not about replacing human labor; it’s about providing a solution for growers where there is a problem.
