Haggerty AgRobotics manages a fleet of Raven OMNi platforms with machine-to-machine connectivity.
Raven Industries announced the purchase of a second OMNiPOWER platform by Haggerty AgRobotics. The second OMNiPOWER platform will allow Haggerty AgRobotics to implement a real-world fleet of autonomous machines.
“Labor shortage concerns within our local growers have really elevated the need for more automation and robotics on the farm,” said Chuck Baresich, President of Haggerty AgRobotics.
Haggerty Creek Ltd., a company delivering grain and crop input needs for growers in Ontario, Canada, purchased its first OMNiPOWER in 2020 and in 2021 purchased OMNiDRIVE to help farmers with operational challenges they face. The growing demand for driverless ag technology as an impactful solution for labor shortages pushed Baresich to launch Haggerty AgRobotics, a service focused entirely on autonomy, robotics and technology automation at the farm level.
The second OMNiPOWER platform will allow Haggerty AgRobotics to implement a real-world fleet of autonomous machines. Baresich will now manage a fleet of OMNi platforms with machine-to-machine connectivity through the Viper 4+ field computer. The integration of Raven’s advanced precision farming technology within the OMNiPOWER platform is to allow for a seamless user experience and real-time shared coverage visibility.

Raven unveiled their OMNi brand of autonomous solutions less than a month ago and is actively fulfilling orders for both OMNiPOWER and OMNiDRIVE units worldwide. OMNiPOWER is a self-propelled power platform that easily interchanges farm implements like a sprayer or spreader. This autonomous platform is to empower ag professionals to perform multiple farm tasks simultaneously without a driver.
