Explanation of fixed lanes, strip cropping and intercropping
Agricultural robotics can be the enabler to execute more sustainable way of cultivation. Below are three key concepts explained that trending, including the way how robotics can contribute:
Fixed driving lane
Good to know: Controlled traffic farming (CTF) is basically the same as fixed driving lane approach.
An example tractor aimed at fixed driving lane approach is the H2Trac
An autonomous robot is not a condition for fixed driving lanes. And in order to adapt current road and different widths of tracks in the field, ideally it should be adaptable. That's covered by H2Trac. Of course the weight of the tractor is beyond the vision of 'ducksize', nevertheless it's a way to care of soil impaction in a way that most current tractors are not able to do.
