Nexus Robotics is one of this year’s winners in IFPA’s Fresh Field Catalyst technology accelerator. It was founded in 2017 by engineering students from Halifax who wanted to disrupt and improve traditional farming practices. 

They’re building innovative robotic tools that will free growers from backbreaking repetitive tasks — and encourage Canada’s agriculture industry to become more sustainable. 

Teric Greenan is the COO, and his city-born perspective helps him ideate incisive solutions to agricultural issues. 

Luc Labbe, CEO at Nexus, brings a wealth of experience and in-depth agronomic knowledge.

Join us as we discuss:

  • How robotic tech will help solve the agricultural labor shortage and lower costs
  • Teaching robots how to identify between different plants and eradicate weeds
  • Automating the dirty and dangerous jobs that no one wants to do
  • Adding value for farmers
