The NewCut project will develop and demonstrate new tools for mechanical weed control for annual and perennial weeds. The goal is to reduce the workload with regards to the removal of perennial weeds in organic crop production by 60%.
As part of the project, new control modules for cultivators will be developed which are more efficient at managing annual weeds. In addition a new concept machine for controlling perennial weeds with shallow roots and stolons will be built. A long-term cooperation will be initiated and within this forum the new technologies and the results will be presented. This will allow for ongoing development and testing of the new tools for mechanical weed control.
The project is financed by The Danish AgriFish Agency.
