Farmbot is the first open source cnc farming machine with the aim to create an open and accessible technology aiding everyone to grow food and to grow food for everyone. It runs on open source hardware like Arduino Mega 2560 and  involves a community of contributors on the wiki and forum where you can find documentation, schematics, assembly guides, troubleshooting tips and many more on all currently supported and old FarmBots.

    Great work done sir,even i am also trying such sort of project where i can use my arduino mega 2560 or uno with GSM shield to make documentation of real time monitoring of my equipment.the problem which i m facing is that….when i connect my gsm shield with the sim to any of the arduino boards then no inbuilt gsm program is giving output.
