This could be quite the disruptive technology someday...
Hand-weeding is tedious. Chemical control is costly and can succumb to resistant weeds over time. So why not build a robot to get the job done?

They turned this #drone into a functional scarecrow to chase off birds ravaging the California pistachio crop. 
At Monarch Inc., drones aren't always just passive observers, collecting data. Sometimes, they like to get in on the action, too.

Midwest Aerial Technologies (MAT) is off the ground as an aerial surveying company focusing on multiple industries across the United States. Through manned aircraft and drones, MAT surveys land for any company or producer that needs 2D or 3D photogrammetry and imagery.

Chances are you don't grow grapes/raisins, but this Supreme Court case could have big implications for EVERY American farmer. http://www.agweb.com/article/supreme-court-rules-for-raisin-farmers-NAA-associated-press/
The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the government can't force raisin farmers to give up part of their annual crop for less than it's worth, a victory for conservative groups that hailed the decision as a win for private property rights.

An out-of-the-box weed control approach - just grit-blast them! 
ARS research agronomist Frank Forcella believed sandblasting organic grit would be an effective weed killer. His determination to break from convention has resulted in a four-row grit blaster capable of obliterating weeds.

The number of replant acres will be "staggering" or just "so-so." Wager a guess which? http://www.agweb.com/article/the-number-of-prevent-plant-acres--staggering-or-so-so-NAA-ben-potter/
As of mid-June, a significant portion of the 2015 crop is still not in the ground. But those acres will be planted eventually … right?
