Near Infrared Weed Detection Technology

NIR technology detects weeds so that only weeds are sprayed and not the whole paddock resulting in significant savings.

Brendan Williams from WEED it explains the technology at the Eyre Peninsula Agricultural Research Foundation (EPARF) members day held at the Minnipa Agricultural Centre. Near infra light reflected from growing plants turns on the nozzle in front of the plant to give spray coverage. Chemical usage can be reduced by up to 90%.
