Fallow weed detection

A drone for precice weed detection allowing farmers to spray exactly where the weeds are

Identification

Farmers are wasting herbicide by spraying areas of the paddock that don't need it. It is not only expensive for farmers, but also pollutes the soils, waterways and in some cases can affect human health. The solution is a fallow weed detection platform that allows farmers to target weeds using their existing machinery. This reduces chemical use by up to 97.5% and turns their existing machinery into a weed targeting platform. The solution uses aerial imagery (drone or plane), to identify and locate weeds. From there a tractor ready file is generated and given to the farmers. This file helps control the nozzles, turning them on if there are weeds and off if there are no weeds. This platform has helped a farmer save over $14,000 in chemical costs on a 700ha paddock.
