Why is this important?
As a farmer, you're always looking for ways to make your job a little bit easier. So when you hear about a new technology that promises to kill weeds with a laser, you're probably pretty intrigued. Is this something that could help take your farm to the next level? Or is it just another gimmicky tech fad that's not worth your time? Farmers have long relied on traditional weeding methods including, herbicides, mechanical weeding, and hand weeding, though each presents challenges. Herbicides can impact the health of the crops, mechanical weeding can damage the plants, and hand labor is expensive and challenging to find. Laserweeding is an innovative, reliable, and sustainable solution for farmers and has proven to be effective on more than a dozen crops. The Carbon Robotics’ patented lighting system enables the LaserWeeder to operate day or night in virtually all weather conditions. It works with millimeter accuracy while protecting natural resources and the environment and at the same time optimizing crop yield and soil health. This revolutionary approach to weeding has the potential to deliver precision, reliability, and cost-effectiveness in organic weeding that has not previously been available, making it an ideal solution to weed management.
