Stout is an artificial intelligence company located in Salinas, California helping growers automate labor-intensive field work like weeding. Founded in 2019, we sold our first Smart Cultivator in 2020 and now have machines with thousands of hours on them.
Today, we continue to apply AI to agriculture through new products, data and services to help growers increase their margins and reduce their costs.
“Our AI-powered machines are designed for easy operation and built to withstand continuous operation in the field”

Our team members grew up in the high-stakes, high-performance industries of automotive racing, defense, aerospace, medical, agriculture, and manufacturing. In industries like these, failure isn’t an option. Combined with our additional experience in innovation and product development at think tanks, startups, and system integrators, our collective project portfolio spans everything from space telescopes and virtual reality headsets, to automated farm equipment and high-throughput specialty manufacturing lines.
In industry, the bottom line is everything.

Our approach results in solutions that are easier to use, more durable and more functional. The ultimate outcome? Less headaches and a faster return on investment.
