Automated Thinner

The Row Crop Thinner is capable of thinning row crops such as lettuce using computer machine vision to identify plant locations and a herbicidal spray to eliminate the unwanted plants, replacing the traditional thinning method of hand labor.

  • Thinning is accomplished at speeds of 3 MPH (5km/hr).
  • Machines have been deployed coast to coast across North America in all soil types.
  • More consistent results than traditional thinning methods.
  • Requires spray tanks on the tractor. The remainder of the plumbing is all mounted on the machine.
  • The entire spray system is comprised of off-the-shelf components allowing for quick and easy replacement of parts and minimal downtime.
  • A touch screen is mounted in the cab and allows the operator to monitor the machine and make any necessary adjustments on the fly.
  • It is available in any configuration to match your planter (number of rows/seed lines).
  • Designed to be operated by a single tractor driver.
  • Internet connectivity is available for remote troubleshooting.
  • Capable of running day and night.
  • The grower can choose any chemical legally available to thin the plants such as fertilizer, acids or herbicides.
  • Excellent performance in all types of lettuce including red leaf.
  • Folding toolbar is available to reduce transport width.
  • Operator interface is multilingual (English/Spanish/French).
  • Free software updates and no annual subscription fees.
