The paper discusses how robotics and autonomous systems (RAS) are being deployed to decarbonise
agricultural production. The climate emergency cannot be ameliorated without dramatic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions across the agri-food sector. This review outlines the transformational role for robotics in the agri-food system and considers where research and focus might be prioritised.
