Croplands National Sales Manager, Jeremy Rennick, has attended previous WeedSmart events and recognises the important role that they play in educating industry on best practice weed management.
“As a subsidiary of Nufarm, the team here at Croplands is very conscious of the importance of effective and efficient chemical application. WeedSmart Week represents an excellent opportunity for us to not only share our weed management solutions but also to hear and learn from forward-thinking growers and advisors,” he says.
Croplands market-leading optical spot spray technology, WEED-IT, will be featured on day two of the Esperance event during the very popular technology and machinery field demonstration. The demonstration will be hosted by Ben White, Kondinin Group’s research manager.
WEED-IT technology operates by detecting chlorophyll in actively growing weeds in fallow fields using near infrared sensors, identifying and targeting weeds with unrivalled accuracy – saving water and time, preserving precious soil moisture and minimising the weed seed bank.
Croplands have led the charge in bringing broadscale spot spraying to the Australian market with over 15,000 WEED-IT sensors sold to farms and contractors across Australia over the past 6 years.
“WEED-IT technology is light-years ahead in terms of weed detection and targeting. And there’s nothing like an in-field demonstration to showcase the impressive results that can be achieved,” says Jeremy.
