This paper investigates the potential of robotic automation in addressing climate vulnerability within the context of horticulture. As climate change intensifies, horticultural systems face increasing challenges, impacting crop yields, resource management, and environmental sustainability. The paper delves into the concept of leveraging robotic automation as an innovative solution to mitigate climate vulnerabilities in horticulture. It explores the benefits and challenges associated with the integration of robotic technologies in agricultural practices. By examining case studies and emerging trends, the paper highlights how robotic automation can contribute to sustainable horticulture practices. Ultimately, the study emphasizes the importance of aligning technological advancements with environmental resilience, paving the way for a more resilient and sustainable future for horticulture.

Keywords: Robotic automation, climate vulnerability, horticulture, innovative solutions, sustainability, resource management
