Summary

Milo Stoecklin from the Fondation Rurale Interjurassienne presents Steketee's IC-Weeder and Garford's Robocrop Inrow Weeder. Both machines are designed for vegetable production and recognise the crop by its shape and colour. These machines were compared with the usual weed control with harrow and hoe.
