Johan Ocken is one of the founders and owner of evofarming KFT. Ocken, who also ownes and manages several companies selling agricultural machinery in Hungary, sees precision farming technology as a possible solution for the lack of labour in agriculture. Therefore evofarming KFT was founded on 1st of January 2022. Robotti is now their first product, with which the company will serve the Hungarian, Romanian and Serbian markets.
Johann Ocken explains: “We already provide many different types of agricultural machinery for the Hungarian market, and we will continue to devote our attention to the traditional agricultural machinery market. Robotics and the new technology require personnel exclusively focusing on this area, which is why we decided to create evofarming.”
He continues: “We are going to use our experience from the traditional area of agriculture to offer the robot to our existing customers: different sized farmers, vegetable growers and agricultural universities. Thanks to its modularity, Robotti is definitely the right product for this target group and so it was important for us to include it in our portfolio.”

The requirements for the production of agricultural products will enormously change in the next decade, Ocken said. “Climate changes, environmental protection requirements, consumer needs towards organic production, avoidance of monotonous work, human resources shortage, etc. A few years ago, the automotive industry began to develop a form of production that made it possible to have all work steps carried out by robots. Even if it still appears to be a utopia in 2022, “hands free farming” in agriculture has already started and will continue to develop very quickly in the next few years.”
