Introducing the Robocrop Inrow Weeder from Garford, the latest in agri-tech weeding technology. Read more about the design and watch it in action below!

The suitably named Robocrop InRow Weeder from Garford, is the latest in weeding technology.

The system uses video image analysis techniques to help locate individual plants and then mechanically remove any weeds from rows. The machine was developed primarily for use by farmers of crops such as cabbages, celery, and lettuce, though it can be used on almost any crop, as long as they are planted with regular plant and row spacing, where the plant foliage is separated clearly from the next plant.

Video Below is an animation of how the Robocrop works

The Robocrop can achieve pinpoint accuracy of 8mm from the stem of a plant, which is more than close enough to relieve the pressure on the plant due to nearby weeds. The design allows for complete weed control in fields.

The Robocrop has forward speeds of up to 6 plant spacings per second, with systems equipped on working for up to 20 rows, with a 6metere working width. Larger variations of the machine are also now available.

Overall, the Robocrop not only saves farmer’s hours spent weeding, but also helps save money due to the lower costs associated with using the Robocrop, rather than traditional, more expensive, manual labour.
