Laser versus weeds: LZH shows Farming 4.0 at the Agritechnica

Lasers instead of pesticides – the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showing this Farming 4.0 vision for the first time during the AGRITECHNICA in Hannover from November 10th to 16th, 2019, at the Pavilion of the state of Niedersachsen (hall 21, stand A05).

The new approach of the LZH is based on the non-contact, optical interaction of light with biological material: cameras can be used to distinguish weeds from crops. This is the basis for using laser radiation to precisely damage weeds and thus help crops to gain a decisive growth advantage.
