Workshop: Automated Weeder Demo
Following on the heels of precision agriculture, many are dubbing the use of automated weeders in specialty crops the “next agricultural revolution”. Recent labor recruitment, retention and affordability issues are driving widespread adoption of these machines in California. Colorado growers are facing similar issues and ag tech companies are interested in engaging with growers throughout Colorado.
Join in a first-ever event for Colorado, a demonstration of industry leading vegetable farm automated weeders at the CSU Arkansas Valley Research Center (AVRC) Friday, June 16, hosted by CSU Extension and the Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association.
