Maize reacts very sensitively to competition from weeds in early growth stages. Without adequate weed control, the crop cannot establish itself. When the rows are closed, only weeds that overgrow the maize, like bindweed, are critical. Important leading weeds in maize are goosefoot, orache, knotweed, speedwell, chamomile and gallant soldier. On typical maize sites, the millet spectrum develops well, which is difficult to control.

It covers 8 rows with a row distance of 75 cm and is equipped with the IC-Light camera steering system for fatigue-free work at day and night time. The Combi-Elements are mounted on a profile toolbar. They are setted up with springtines with duck foots to work inter-row and protection discs to prevent crop damage.
