Haulm killing with a hybrid electric method requires less power


Hybrid electric crop protection. This is how Australian crop protection chemical company Nufarm and the German start-up CROP.ZONE describe their new invention,

NuCrop for chemical-free weed control and haulm killing in potatoes. It combines the technique of electrocution with a special fluid for better current conduction, which requires less (motor) power and achieves more capacity than existing plant electrocution techniques.
