Weeding Robots

High tech automated farming could be one of the solutions for the world to move forward towards a more environmentally friendly future. Plants grown organically require more time and care than their synthetically grown counterparts. Take weeding for example, in non-organic commercial farms petroleum-based herbicides are usually sprayed to kill the weeds. Leaving a lot of the chemicals for the consumers and the environment.

Organic farms, on the other hand, will choose to use a more sustainable approach such as mechanical control. Currently that a could be mechanical tools which require a farmer to operate which could be very labour intensive. Fortunately, many universities like the University of Sydney are developing new technologies to help identify and remove weeds! Saving previous time for organic farmers to do more important things.
