FarmBot Genesis mini 1.5.k Designed by Zalophus’s DesignHouse

FarmBot Genesis mini are the largest, most advanced, and most customizable FarmBots we offer.

Features and Functions

DIY and Customizable

FarmBot Genesis and Genesis XL are flexible DIY platforms for experimentation and modification. Have an idea for a new tool? 3D print it and load it into the toolbay!

Electronics

Farmduino v1.5 includes Trinamic TMC2130 stepper drivers with built-in stall detection, a co-processor for monitoring the rotary encoders, and five full-power peripherals.

Interchangeable Tooling

The Genesis Universal Tool Mounting system features 12 electrical connections, three liquid/gas lines, and magnetic coupling to support a wide variety of tools.

Included Tools

Seed Injector

Powered by a 24 volt vacuum pump, the seed injector can precisely position seeds in the ground with millimeter accuracy. Interchangeable luer lock needles allow you to work with both small and large seeds.

Watering Nozzle

Coupled with a solenoid valve, this tool allows you to precision water your plants with a gentle shower. The two-piece design allows custom spray patterns by 3D printing your own lower half.

Weeder

Stomp out weeds before they become a problem with this customizable weeding tool. Blades and spikes come standard, though you can experiment with corkscrews and other implement designs.

Soil Sensor

By measuring the moisture content of the soil, FarmBot can be configured to take care of your crops in more water-efficient ways. For example: it can avoid watering after a rain.

Seed Containers

The included seed bin holds large amounts of one type of seed, while the trays are suitable for planting many different crops or when the number of seeds per hole needs to be strictly controlled.

Camera

FarmBot’s built-in waterproof camera can take photos of your plants and soil in order to track plant growth, detect weeds, and one day identify pests, disease, and fruit ripeness.

Available in two sizes

What you can grow

FarmBot is well suited to growing a polycrop of many common garden veggies at the same time. Crops we’ve had success with include Bok Choy, Lettuces, Radish, Beets, Chard, Arugula, Broccoli, and much more.

By placing vining and other indeterminate crops near the ends of the bed and training them outwards, you can easily double or triple the area your plants can utilize while still being maintained by the FarmBot.

Yield

By our estimations, FarmBot Express and FarmBot Genesis can grow all of the veggies needed by one person, continuously, for less cost after roughly 2 years than shopping at the average US grocery store. Meanwhile, our XL bots can serve a family of four with an ROI period as short as 1 year.

Warranty

We’re committed to providing you with the highest quality product. As we continue to develop FarmBot hardware and software, we will make changes. The final product that we ship to you may be different than the one shown in our videos, photos, documentation, and as described on our websites. If anything is damaged or defective, we will replace the parts free of charge within 30 days of delivery of the product. See our limited warranty for more information.

What you need to provide

Planter Bed
All FarmBots must be mounted to a raised bed or similar infrastructure. Neither materials for the bed nor soil are included with the kits because every installation will be different, and shipping lumber and soil would be prohibitively expensive.

 

Electricity
FarmBot must be plugged into a 110 or 220V outlet. The 30cm (1ft) power cord comes with a standard US 3-prong plug. You must connect this to your own extension cord if needed. Customers outside the US: you must provide a plug adapter if needed.

 

Water
FarmBot’s water system has a 3/4″ female Garden Hose Thread (GHT) connection, meaning you can take a standard US garden hose and screw it into your FarmBot. You will need to provide a hose of the appropriate length.

 

Internet
FarmBot can only be controlled using the web app, so an internet connection is required. The Raspberry Pi has built-in WiFi, though you may need to reposition your WiFi router or install a repeater to ensure a reliable connection.
