About us

Autonomous Pivot transforms center-pivot irrigation systems into an intelligent, AI-driven robotic platform that can improve farming returns. Proprietary, non-invasive sensors and cameras provide growers with a complete, yet affordable, solution that autonomously maximizes crop yields while saving on water and other inputs. AP can perform 300 soil moisture readings per rotation without disturbing the soil, compared to 1 static soil moisture probe. Our unique AI Agronomist™ works 24/7 to optimize a field’s irrigation — even alerting you of crop pests or diseases in real time.


For the past three years, the Autonomous Pivot solution has been implemented in working farms across Kansas, Nebraska, and Texas. For the 2021 summer season, we installed and serviced over a hundred systems farming across the Midwest, autonomously optimizing corn, soybean, alfalfa, and potato crops around the clock.
