Zappers, seed grinders, and robots, oh my! What’s the latest in weed control technology?

For this episode of The Agronomists, host Lyndsey Smith is joined by Chuck Baresich of Haggerty AgRobotics, and Kim Brown Livingston of Manitoba Agriculture, to discuss the trouble with problem weeds and the new (old?) ways to deal with them.

From robot-run cultivation and rogueing, to laser zappers, and back to tried-and-true cultural control, watch below for a great discussion on the opportunity and limitations of novel weed control technology.
