Garford Farm Machinery showcase future of mechanical weed control
Garford Farm Machinery will be showcasing its full range of technologically advanced mechanical weed control products, including its Robocrop Precision Guide Hoes and InRow Weeders, at CropTec 2023 (Hall2, Stand 830).
A team of experts will be on stand to discuss how mechanical hoes are re-emerging as a crucial element to sustainable, integrated weed management systems, not only for high-value and high-intensive crops, but also across broadacre arable crops.
With the increasingly stringent controls over the use of chemical weed controls, alongside supply chain issues, hoeing and intercrop crop cultivation is becoming common practice, as UK agriculture embraces its environmental responsibilities.
Details on Garford’s innovative, precision guided equipment, developed and manufactured in the UK, will be available on stand. These include the full range of robotic mechanical weed control products as well as manual hoes.
The Robocrop range of products use video cameras and image analysis computers to locate crop position and then guide the hoes quickly and accurately.
The team will also be discussing recent NIAB research, demonstrating the efficacy of mechanical weeding hoes as part of a combined approach to weed control, with the aim to reduce reliance on chemical inputs.
