Abstract A real-time intelligent robotic weed control system was developed for selective herbicide application to in-row weeds using machine vision and precision chemical application. The robotic vision system took 0.34s to process one image, representing a 11.43 cm by 10.16 cm region of seedline containing 10 plant objects, allowing the prototype robotic weed control system to travel at a continuous rate of 1.20 km/h. The overall performance of the robotic system in a commercial processing tomato field and in simulated trials is discussed.
