I don't think robotic vehicles are an immediate necessity in our agriculture. I do believe however that investments are important in other areas, in technologies that are supposed to improve vehicle efficiency, durability, fuel consume and the list can go on.

I think it would take few more years for them to come up with such vehicles. Right now we have to be satisfied with the regular vehicles we have.

My uncle also offers original parts there, I buy my Nissan Maxima parts from his parts shop.
