Especially in the early stages of sugar beet development, the risk of yield loss due to weed competition is critical. Therefore, sugar beet must be kept weed-free until the end of the row. A clean field also simplifies the harvesting process.
This is what your EC weeder for weed control in sugar beet might look like:
- 12 rows
- Row spacing 50 cm
- IC-Light camera control for fatigue-free work day and night
The combination elements with the EC-Space tool setting are mounted on a profile frame and equipped with chopping knives and protractors on the rigid holder for working between the rows.
Hydraulic lifting of the combination elements and finger hoes ensures less crop damage at the headland.
