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

You control and configure FarmBot using the free FarmBot web application at my.farm.bot. We expect to indefinitely offer free service adequate for home growing needs, though we may charge for commercial or industrial FarmBot usage, for FarmBots larger than 3m x 6m in area, and/or for FarmBots growing large numbers of plants concurrently. You can always host the software on your own server if you do not want to use our service.
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.
