Weed regulation plays a key role in the complex network of problems in today's agriculture. It can be seen as an initial problem, triggering many other ecological conflicts which threaten to get worse in the coming years. An ecological solution for weed control that is also economically attractive has not yet been established. partikular is a new method of blasting split particles with compressed air and is combined with the use of artificial intelligence and thus even further developed: The use of plant detection allows a selective approach and therefore an enormous increase in efficiency. The result is a weather-independent, soil-conserving and autonomously working robot that uses residue products such as maize split for ecological weed control. Its unusually large working width gives the robot an exceptional area performance that allows it to compete even on conventionally operated farms.
