Site Specific Weed Management (SSWM) Workshop

A working Group Meeting by

European Weed Research Society

30th October - 1st November 2019

University of Southern Denmark Odense, Denmark


Recent progress in research and engineering of weed sensing, data science, precision sprayers and robotics have made it possible to automate weed identification, weed mapping and site specific control of weeds with advanced sprayers and robots. At this workshop in Odense, we will share these latest progresses and discuss how they enables answering scientific questions and practical applications.


The workshop starts with the keynotes


1) Using machine learning for weed identification given by ass. prof. Henrik Skov Midtiby, Mærsk Institute, University of Southern Denmark


2) Advanced data fusion for weed mapping given by Dr. Tarin Pas-Kagan ARO, Israel


The format of the workshop will be a mixture of presentation composed from the submitted abstracts and group discussions. In addition, ass. Prof. Jesper Rasmussen and research ass. Jesper Cairo Westergaard holds a special tutorial workshop on how to map weed density with your mobile phone and QGIS.
