CNH Industrial and Zasso announce innovative Electric Weeding Concept for vines and orchards as well as an exclusive distribution partnership
AGXTEND, CNH Industrial’s incubator and commercialization brand for tech starts up, presents the revolutionary XPS Electric Weeding concept system in collaboration with Zasso. Electronic weed control allows a wider range of application and is at the same time particularly environmentally friendly, when compared to traditional chemical systems. With this development, AGXTEND is responding to the current challenges in weed control: increasing herbicide resistance, major restrictions on the approval of active ingredients, social efforts towards ecological agriculture and considerable public skepticism about pesticide applications. Meanwhile, pressure from agriculture to work more productively and achieve high yields is a further driving force.
