Ongoing research aims to identify improved non-chemical weed management tactics for targeting the intra-row zone using cultural, physical, and preventative methods. Research topics include: (i) weed seedbank depletion for reduced weed emergence; (ii) augmentation of crop density and spatial arrangement for increased weed suppression; (iii) targeted placement of fertilizer for improved crop growth and impaired weed growth; and (iv) optimization of robot-assisted intra-row hoeing and flame weeding.
