Carbon Robotics, a Seattle-based agricultural robotics company, is pioneering the next revolution in agriculture by solving one of farming’s biggest problems: Weed Control.
The 2022 LaserWeeder implement is an autonomous, laser-weeding pull-behind robot that is a precise, organic, and cost-effective weed control solution for large-scale specialty row crops.
Unlike other weeding technologies, LaserWeeder robots utilize high power lasers that can eradicate weeds through thermal energy, without disturbing the soil. It allows farmers to use herbicides and reduces labor to remove unwanted plants while at the same time improves the reliability and predictability of costs, crop yield and more.
“We’ve proven the effectiveness of our laser-weeding technology and the immense benefits it offers farmers, including healthier crops and soil, decreased herbicide use, and reduced chemical and labor costs,” said Carbon Robotics CEO and Founder, Paul Mikesell.
As a liftable agricultural implement, the 2022 LaserWeeder offers farmers unique benefits:
- Increased Crop Yield and Quality
- Overall Cost Reduction
- Regenerative Farming Practices
- Economical Path to Organic Farming
