Representatives from KULT-Kress appeared on Yuma TV last month, in a special segment about our work in cotton with Dr. Mark Siemens of The University of Arizona. Herbicide resistance is a concern for many conventional cotton growers, and organic cotton growers need tools to bring their crop to market. The fingerweeders work in-row, where traditional knives and rolling cultivators can’t get to. With the aid of camera-guidance – which is used to shift the entire toolbar from side-to-side – our tools are the only way to achieve weed removal between the plants, in any way that makes sense based on the economics of crops like cotton, corn, soybeans, etc.
This is an on-going project that is funded by the Arizona Cotton Growers Association and Cotton Incorporated, and we thank them for their support!
