The Garford Robocrop InRow Weeder uses video image analysis techniques to locate individual plants in order to mechanically remove weeds from the inter row and within the crop row between the plants.  Developed for use on transplanted crops such as lettuce, cabbage, celery etc Robocrop InRow can however be used on most crops that are planted with regular plant and row spacing where the plant foliage is clearly separated from the next plant. The optional eRotor model uses a high torque electric motor for additional speed and accuracy.
