In this episode of The Produce Industry Podcast w/ Patrick Kelly we chat with two gentlemen that have tackled that WAR ON WEEDS!!! That’s right everyone The Carbon Robotics Autonomous Weeder leverages robotics, artificial intelligence (AI), and laser technology to safely and effectively drive through crop fields to identify, target and eliminate weeds. Paul discussed many aspects of “WHY” they decided to venture into this space and the problems their machine is solving. We called it the Hummer/Tesla of Weeders!!!
Unlike other weeding technologies, the robots utilize high-power lasers to eradicate weeds through thermal energy, without disturbing the soil. The automated robots allow farmers to use less herbicides and reduce labor to remove unwanted plants while improving the reliability and predictability of costs, crop yield and more.
Join as we learn from Paul Mikesell and Shay Myers on how to WIN THE WAR ON WEEDS and keep farming costs to minimum, while producing the highest and best quality yields.
