The move allows the German family-owned company to expand its product range to include mechanical weed control and future-oriented camera-assisted machine guidance with individual plant recognition.

Managing director Rolf Zürn of Zürn Harvesting reckons that the increasing resistance problems with herbicides will open up new opportunities for mechanical weed control.

“In the future, we want to jointly use our experience and resources in sales, production and development to enable Garford to take further growth steps with its extensive hoeing technology programme,” he said.
