Ubiqutek has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 733687.

The project will develop a cost-effective and environmental weed control technology using electricity.  As part of the project, the technology will be integrated into an advanced weeding solution produced by Steketee to treat weeds in and between rows of vegetables and other arable crops.  NIAB will perform the efficacy testing.  The technology can easily be integrated into other existing weeding solutions.  The project started on 1-November-2016 and will last 24 months.
