Human-like robots and self-driving tractors are the future to replace the agricultural labor force in Japan – wrote. The reason is that the Japanese farmers are getting too old and no one is there to take over their work.


As the average age of farmers is higher and higher all over the world, Japan made the decision: self-driving tractors and robots are needed. While in countries around the world, seasonal workers are afraid that robots will take their jobs, the situation is different in Japan. According to UN data, tha average age of farmers in developing countries is 60 years, while in Africa, for example, more and more young people are trying to return to farming.
