Pesticides are used in farming to protect from weeds, diseases and pests and play an important role in adding to the productivity of the field. However, movement of pesticides beyond the target is undesirable as it represents wastage of product and exposure to sensitive, non-target areas.
Spray application is complex and there is currently no way of receiving immediate feedback to indicate if spray set up and operation is correct.
The challenge is to uncover a technology solution that will ensure the best practice and decision making to reduce the impacts of spray drift in order to improve agricultural productivity, profitability and sustainability.
