Tertill weeding gardening robot

  • 229

Tertill is an American agricultural robot for weed control in horticulture. The small, solar-powered, weeding robot is fully automatic. It can be used in small gardens only.

The Tertill is very easy to use and starts weeding your garden with the push of a button – no programming required. Below are a few simple steps to prepare your garden so the Tertill can perform at its best.

  1. Keep it small – Each Tertill can maintain approximately 20 square metres of garden. That’s about a 4×5 meter area.
  2. Create a barrier – A Tertill will wander away if there is no physical barrier around the perimeter of its garden. The barrier should be at least 6 inches high. The best barrier materials for the Tertill are conductive and include:

Metal fencing (chain link fence, chicken wire, iron fence, etc.).
Fence (picket fence, wood fence, landscape timbers, wood planks).
Brick edging
Set line guards
Plastic boundary guards keep Tertill in check, but Tertill takes more effort to detect them – which takes time away from weeding.

  1. Surface preparation – Tertill works best when the terrain is relatively flat. The Tertill has four-wheel drive and will do its best to avoid rocks and clods, but the time spent tackling these is time lost weeding. A well-plowed garden with no rocks or ruts larger than a few inches is optimal.
  2. Start with a clean slate – Tertill uses a simple strategy to distinguish between weeds and plants: weeds are short and plants are tall. For this strategy to work, Tertill should be placed in the garden early in the season, before weeds start to grow, when weeds are less than a few inches tall, or immediately after weeding the garden.
  3. Spacing- Tertill works best in a garden that follows the traditional recommended plant spacing, which is usually 25-30 cm between plants, which gives Tertill enough space to reach all parts of the garden. Placing plants in this way also helps to maximize yields and minimize pests and diseases from dense planting.
