Selectively apply herbicides, insecticides, fertilisers and fungicides to plants

Agricultural producers and contractors are reaping the benefits from sensors that can be used to selectively apply herbicides, insecticides, fertlisers and fungicides to plants in an agricultural, horticultural, viticultural and industrial situation.

WeedSeeker® users are achieving up to 90% savings in fallow herbicide; substantially reducing costs and significantly delivering environmental benefits.

The WeedSeeker® system is designed for use on any crop free surface, such as under vines or trees, between row crops, industrial situations or, most commonly, on broadacre fallow paddocks.

  • Uses advanced optics to sense if a plant/weed is present
  • Applies chemicals directly on the plant/weed
  • Utilises standard pumps, tanks, and plumbing so an existing spray boom can be retrofitted

As Australian distributor for WeedSeeker, McIntosh Distribution works closely with WeedSeeker and Australian farmers to provide solutions for better and more efficient farming processes.

“Efficient, cost effective & environmentally sustainable”

How It Works

How It Works

The WeedSeeker will spray only weeds, not bare ground.

The WeedSeeker® technology uses sensors and nozzles spaced at 380mm apart.  This spacing is due to a narrower field of view of the sensors compared to a 500mm spacing on a standard boom.  The WeedSeeker® will spray only weeds, not bare ground. WeedSeeker® technology is effective wherever weeds occur intermittently, and can be fitted to most boom sprays.

WeedSeeker® is being used in agriculture, irrigation districts, along roadsides, railway corridors, airport runways, golf courses, parking lots, median strips, parks and hiking trails, etc.  The possibilities are limitless.

Quick Disconnect Stainless Steel Bracket Kits

Quick Disconnect Stainless Steel Bracket Kits

Fit your WeedSeeker sensors to sprayers in under 30 mins

A handy quick-release bracket kit, the WeedSeeker Quick Disconnect Stainless Steel Bracket Kits allows easy installation and removal of your WeedSeeker system from a wide range of popular self-propelled and towed sprayers in just under 30 minutes.

A new frame and a less bulky design are just some of the features of the new bracket kit, which can be simply bolted on and taken off the spray boom by one person in half an hour, saving valuable time.

As a result of a new plumbing system, using TeeJet solenoids, and smaller brackets, the life of your boom is also extended due a lighter load on your boom.

When your WeedSeeker spray boom is not in use, the brackets can be conveniently removed and stored under cover for protection.  Or, if necessary, simply moved to another spray rig quick and easily.

The WeedSeeker Quick Disconnect Stainless Steel Bracket Kits are available for a range of popular self-propelled and towed sprayer brands.  Speak to your WeekSeeker dealer for available models.

Application - Broadacre & Row Crop

Application - Broadacre & Row Crop

Spray weeds, not bare ground

Broadacre

Save up to 90% on chemical costs by spraying the weeds and not bare ground.

Growers use WeedSeeker systems to control weeds for chemical fallow spraying, no-till field spraying, pre-plant weed spraying and post-harvest weed control by automatically spot spraying the weeds and not bare soil.

Milkthistle, Bindweed, Fleabane, Round-up Ready Cotton, and Ryegrass are just a few of the difficult to control weeds for broadacre farmers.  Weeds drain the nutrients and water from the soil reducing yield and profits.

Row Crop

High value crops such as vegetables, melons and nursery stock often require frequent applications of fungicides, mildicides and foliar feeds.

Self-propelled, utility vehicles, ATVs or pull-behind sprayers all constantly apply herbicide regardless of how high or low the weed coverage. Herbicide costs are the same in either situation.

The WeedSeeker system uses advanced optics and computer circuitry to sense the presence of the crop.   When the crop enters the sensor's field of view, it signals a spray nozzle, or series of nozzles, to deliver a precise amount of fungicide, mildicide, fertiliser, etc to the crop.  Chemicals are applied directly to the crop where it is needed and not on the bare ground.  This reduces the overall chemical use and dramatic savings are achieved early in the spray cycle before plants grow together.

Application - Broadacre & Row Crop Features

The WeedSeeker® system is relatively simple to install, with most farmers choosing to retain their existing spray line and plumbing in the WeedSeeker® sensors as an additional spray line.

For example, on a 24 metre boom, 64 sensors are installed at 380mm spacing and connected to a daisy cable, which runs from sensor to sensor.

Line controller boxes are connected to the daisy cable and control up to 32 sensors each. The line controllers are connected to a control box in the tractor cabin, which has settings for speed and sensitivity.

The fast fire solenoids are fitted with flat fan nozzles to spray a 500mm by 500mm footprint.

Control weeds on berms, strips or row-to-row

Vineyard

Vineyards managers use WeedSeeker to control weeds on berms, strips or row-to-row by automatically spot spraying the weeds and not bare soil.

Self-propelled, utility vehicles, ATVs or pull-behind sprayers all spray constantly to apply herbicide regardless of high or low weed coverage.  Herbicide costs are the same in either situation.

The WeedSeeker system uses advanced optics and computer circuitry to sense the presence of weed.  When the weed enters the sensor’s field of view, it signals a spray nozzle to deliver a precise amount of herbicide only to that weed.  Herbicide use is reduced 60% to 90% on most spray applications.

Orchard

Nutsedge, Spurge, Johnsongrass & Morning Glory are just a few of the difficult to control weeds in orchards.  Weeds drain the nutrients and water from the soil reducing yield and profits.

Chemical Suckering

Undesired suckers on grape vines or orchard trees need to be removed or sprayed.

Vineyard managers often use chemicals to control the undesired suckers.  The WeedSeeker system automatically applies the chemical on the suckers without wasting the chemical on the bare areas between the plants.

Spray weeds, not dirt or asphalt

There are tens of thousands of kilometres of railway, roadway, footpath and runways in Australia, all of which need weed control.

The WeedSeeker is ideal for application of chemical on weeds which can be used both day and night, and with an integrated controller, sensors can spray at speeds of up to 50km/hr, a threefold increase over conventional spraying techniques.
