Benefits of High Precision weeding

Ecorobotix is a swiss based agricultural robot manufacturer.

Their mission is to develop and manufacture high precision weeding robots.


When speaking of high precision weeding, Ecorobotix means:

1- Recognition of each species: crops and weed species, to map precisely each plant location;

2- The size of spraying pixels: the best time is at an early stage;

3- Accuracy: as the camera is positioned approx. one metre before the sprayer, the robot movement needs to be highly accurate to spray at the right time;

4- The spraying patterns: the issue is to be as precise as possible to not spray on the crops;

5- Output of the robot.

What are the benefits of high precision weeding, aka "spot spraying"?

  • Way less chemicals sprayed
  • On row spraying
  • Less phytotoxicity, and thus higher yields.

Claude Juriens, Business Manager at Ecorobotix, explains.
