Mechanical weed control between the rows is always a sensitive issue: You have to find the right mix between operating speed and distance to the row. In order to avoid early fatigue of the tractor driver and to allow ideally that the soil profile is completely tilled (in conjunction with a fingerweeder), Einböck has developed the ROW-GUARD. The camera steering system guides row-crop cultivator with absolute precision, even at high speeds. The setting of the row configurations (row spacing, number of rows, etc.) is simply done from the tractor cab. The image is scanned to find the higher concentrations of green pixels relating to the crop rows and, using prior knowledge of the row configuration, overlay a matching grid onto the image.This information is then utilized to bring the equipment onto the exact row centers via a hydraulic side-shift.
