hat jemand von euch bereits den FarmBot im Einsatz?
Grow food for yourself, your family, and your community by installing FarmBot on a raised bed, urban rooftop, or in a small greenhouse at home. Fully automated, hyper-local food production has never been so attainable.
What you need to provide
All FarmBots must be mounted to a raised bed or similar infrastructure. Neither materials for the bed nor soil are included with the kits because every installation will be different, and shipping lumber and soil would be prohibitively expensive.
FarmBot must be plugged into a 110 or 220V outlet. The 30cm (1ft) power cord comes with a standard US 3-prong plug. You must connect this to your own extension cord if needed. Customers outside the US: you must provide a plug adapter if needed.
FarmBot’s water system has a 3/4″ female Garden Hose Thread (GHT) connection, meaning you can take a standard US garden hose and screw it into your FarmBot. You will need to provide a hose of the appropriate length.
FarmBot can only be controlled using the web app, so an internet connection is required. The Raspberry Pi has built-in WiFi, though you may need to reposition your WiFi router or install a repeater to ensure a reliable connection.
What you can grow
FarmBot is well suited to growing a polycrop of many common garden veggies at the same time. Crops we’ve had success with include Bok Choy, Lettuces, Radish, Beets, Chard, Arugula, Broccoli, and much more.
By placing vining and other indeterminate crops near the ends of the bed and training them outwards, you can easily double or triple the area your plants can utilize while still being maintained by the FarmBot.
You control and configure FarmBot using the free FarmBot web application at my.farm.bot. We expect to indefinitely offer free service adequate for home growing needs, though we may charge for commercial or industrial FarmBot usage, for FarmBots larger than 3m x 6m in area, and/or for FarmBots growing large numbers of plants concurrently. You can always host the software on your own server if you do not want to use our service.
Watch our videos and read the software documentation to learn the ins and outs of the FarmBot web app. Then use our developer resources to build plugins or make contributions to the open-source repositories.

Ich liebäugle mit dem Genesis XL. Der ist angeblich ab Ende 2020 verfügbar.
Was mich an diesem System besonders reizt ist, dass es OpenSource ist und alle Datenblätter und so weiter offen gelegt sind. Somit wird es hoffentlich nicht so ein Rohrkrepierer wie Koubachi. Diesen Elektroschrott habe ich leider immer noch bei mir rumliegen…
