Nexus Robotics is a start-up company based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They have built a robot prototype for pulling weeds put of vegetable crops. The purpose of this technology is to reduce the dependence farmers have on labour and herbicides for weed control. Nexus will be performing a field trial this summer at Elmridge Farm in the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia. Nexus is planning to offer a robotic weeding service to farmers in the near future.
