The robot replaces the role of duck inhibiting the weed in the rice field

A robot inspired duck ricefields plays an active role in reducing weed growth in the fields. The duck robot, dubbed Aigamo, is being tested in an agricultural area of ​​Yamagata Prefecture, northeastern Japan.

The weed itself is a type of plant whose presence is not desired by farmers because it can reduce agricultural yields.

The robot was developed by Nissan Motor Co. engineers on Monday (24/06), according to information from the Nippon news agency. This robot is able to move automatically on the water and create a cloudy water with a "two feet" of rubber inhibiting photosynthesis of weeds.

The "feet" function agitates the water and prevents the emergence of weeds. Nissan has designed a robot such as a vacuum cleaner measuring 60 square centimeters and weighing 1.5 kg.

The presence of the duck robot was motivated by the desire of a friend of Nissan engineers to plant rice without using pesticides.

In fact, the technique of using ducks to clean rice plants from weeds has been used for a long time. As reported by National Geographic, a Chinese rice farmer, Tang Zhengqing, has become the pioneer of technology in the modern era.

Tang taught dozens of ducks belonging to him to protect the rice from insect attacks. Then they tear weeds, attack the pests and leave the earth as food.

Although the technique has long been applied in China about 600 years ago, but because the use of industrial technology has been a threat to the environment in recent years.

The integration of ducks in the rice sector is also able to help farmers overcome the effects of climate change on the actions of ducks that kill the parasites with a little help from biopesticides.
