Implement: Lumina
Weeding tools: Blue laser
Pricing: €350.000 ($383516 according to the exchange rate of 05-04-2023)

The WeedBot Lumina uses blue light laser because the company sees multiple benefits compared to other light sources. It can cover up to 6 m wide: 3 beds or 8 ridges. The preferred weed size is up to 2 cm and it can treat weeds as close as 2 mm to the crop. In general, broadleaf weeds are better controlled by laser compared to grass weeds. In case a weed is covered by the crop, it won’t be treated.

Currently, the implement is designed to work in carrots only. Other vegetables (leafy greens, onions, beetroot, et cetera) will be added later on. Lumina can operate at speeds up to 1.2 km/h covering up to 0.7 ha/h. In 2024, the machine will be available for selected carrot growers in Europe. The company plans to offer multiple image-derived information services with the next versions of Lumina.
