For decades herbicides have been the main means of weed control. The extensive use of chemical substances in agriculture is generating devastating effects on our environment and is also affecting human health. Additionally, several weed varieties have been developing a natural resistance to the applied chemicals, hence new and more potent herbicides have to be developed, which have a higher toxicity with dire consequences for the environment and organisms that come into contact with it.
We say “no” to an excessive use of herbicides and “yes” to an ecological way of weeding.
Due to the great ecological and human health effects, the world is demanding chemical free crops from our fields. Laser-based weeding is an excellent non-herbicide solution to weed control that will enable the production of organic certified products.
Our technology has the potential for installing a new generation of sustainable crop
production farms. With the use of the laser-based weeding system at large scales,
herbicide use can be substantially reduced.
Our goal is that within the foreseeable future this weeding method will be used by every major crop producer, thus, protecting the the environment and the health of the population.
