TerraClear’s End-to-End Solution at Koinonia Farms

Koinonia Farms on the Camas Prairie in North Central Idaho significantly reduced the time and labor spent picking rocks and minimized rock damage during harvest with TerraClear’s end-to-end solution.
A drone took high resolution images of the field.
A Rock Map was created showing the exact size and location of the rocks.
The Rock Picker operator used the map to travel directly from rock to rock, efficiently clearing the field.

“Time is precious, labor is hard to find, and our window to get fields seeded is really narrow. We don’t have the manpower or time to spend days picking rock by hand anymore. TerraClear cleared the field of rock in ¼ of the time it would have typically taken and we were able to spend our time getting other fields seeded.”
