Automated Weeders

Weeding is a technique involving cutting up and mixing the first centimetres of soil by using suitable tools. Weeding immediately provides noticeable and evident benefits. Indeed, this technique stops the vertical capillarity that forms in the soil during dry periods. In exchange, it also evens out rainwater, ensuring that the upper layer of the soil absorbs it more easily. Moreover, weeders can be used to eliminate the amount of chemical weedkiller, thereby also reducing the environmental impact of traditional artificial herbicides. Precisely considering this last aspect, mechanical weeding drastically reduces labour: in the past the latter was the only alternative to chemicals, which are used less and less nowadays due to regulations protecting health and the environment.   

This goes to the benefit of so-called ‘root crops’: the main vegetables falling under this category are salad, cabbage, tomatoes, soybeans, tobacco, etc. The latter stand out from the rest because they are particularly vulnerable to weeds and extraneous species that appear suddenly and grow very quickly. Indeed, these species take nutrients away from crops and reduce light reception, which is essential to ensure excellent, thriving growth for the plant. This is why weeders are usually employed during the first stages of growth of vegetables, when weeds and other harmful species can still be avoided.

Ferrari Costruzioni Meccaniche has specialised in the production of high precision weeders. This equipment differs from common machines as it allows you to identify the plants to grow with latest generation optical vision systems. Moreover, the weeder tools are made with top quality materials that ensure durability over time. Ferrari Costruzioni Meccaniche weeders are available in trailed and self-propelled versions, in the following models:

  • REMOWEED;
  • REMOLITE;
  • SCORPION.
