Crown Princess Mette-Marit did a test drive of the agricultural robot Thorvald when the couple visited the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) at Ås.
The Crown couple were given a comprehensive program at the university and learned about some of the research that takes place there.
The topics during the couple’s visit were amongst others antibiotic resistance, insects, urban agriculture and the DNA of plants and animals.
Outside, Crown Princess Mette-Marit took control of the robot Thorvald. The visit ended in the university’s newly built techno barn, where they gained an insight into how a modern barn is furnished with automatic feeding and milking robots.
