A Dutch nursery has developed a new weed control machine for field grown seedlings. The machine is working on gps coordinates and has a big capacity.
The machine is 7.5 metres wide and can do the weed control at 5 planting beds in one go. It has been developed by Styen Herijgers, young entrepreneur (30 years) of Hergo Nursery in Dutch growing area Zundert. The machine has been build by another young entrepreneur, Erwin Delcroix (26 years) from the same area.
