Operational Group

Smart Weeding, Organic Feeding

Start Date: 01 July 2017

End Date: 30 June 2019

Location: Roeselare, Belgium

Objective:

The growers in the operational group must decide on the effectiveness of their weed control for the future. Individually, the investment in modern weeding technology is not feasible and only a basic mechanism is possible. Through mutual cooperation they may be able to gain access to a modern machine park for mechanical weed control with more impact and higher performance as a result. This is the goal of this operational group. In parallel, the relevant machines are mapped out and potential forms of cooperation are tested. Through a demonstration day, the experiences are shared with the general public.

Partners:

  • 3 dairy farmers
  • 1 organic dairy farmer
  • 2 horticulturist
  • 1 consultant
  • 1 constructor of weeding machines
  • 3 suppliers of weeding machines
