Trending Innovations & Tech - Gavin Howley & Robert Pocock

  1. 1. TRENDING INNOVATIONS AND TECH All the stuff we love and can’t afford…
  2. 2. Rowtrack with linkage 5Kl tank and boom
  3. 3. Microwave Weed Control Advantages – Kills weeds regardless of weather and conditions Disadvantage- this one does 11cm a unit (inter row use) producing 2kw each so power requirements would be in its current form, huge.
  4. 4. Camera Sprayers  Weed-it • One camera per meter controlling 5 jets of 20cm coverage each. • Four sensitivity settings allowing you to target larger weeds and spray seedlings with blanket boom • Capable of PWM to maintain a uniform dose at a range of speeds • Can be retrofitted although some companies make a dedicated boom i.e.Croplands.
  5. 5. Weed Seeker • More compact and easier to retrofit • Fewer nozzles per meter (15inch spacings) so potential for more spray wastage • Have to be calibrated more often to different soil types etc. • Now owned by trimble.
  6. 6. Greenseeker • Mounted on any equipment can detect in broad terms, the nitrogen status of a crop • In future may be used to vary the rate of a sprayer or spreader in real time for top dressing applications so that your fert dollar goes where it is required.
  7. 7. Robot Tractors • Not far away are tractors that can perform tasks unmanned • Your imagination is the limit, think of sending your tractor out to microwave inter row weeds while applying N where its on board NIR sensor tells it to. • The only draw back is very fat farmers and very few of them. • What could possibly go wrong?
  8. 8. Drones/UAV  Seeing a crop from the air can reveal patterns that expose everything from irrigation problems to soil variation and even pest and fungal infestations that aren’t apparent at eye level.  Second, airborne cameras can take multispectral images, capturing data from the infrared as well as the visual spectrum, which can be combined to create a view of the crop that highlights differences between healthy and distressed plants in a way that can’t be seen with the naked eye
  9. 9.  As far as I can tell, they are being used mostly to make cool videos to show off to your mates on facebook and twitter.
  10. 10. Cool Stuff  Accufire non drip-drip torch  Uses a pilot light so drip can be turned off remotely and used at high speeds
  11. 11.  Wireless rain guage (Precision Agronomics Aus) • Used where ever Next G signal can be acquired…… • Tipping bucket gauge accurate to .2mm • On board modem updates data every half hour • Can access via app or web program • Data can be fed into Yield Prophet crop production model. • From $440
  12. 12. Automatic Livestock Management @sapientech @racewell @ShearwellAust
  13. 13. Implement Steering @protrakker @johndeere
  14. 14. Glow in the dark sheep. Scientists from Uruguay's Institute of Animal Reproduction modified the gene of nine sheep using a green fluorescent protein found in the Aequorea Victoria jellyfish.
  15. 15. Wire-less fencing CSIRO which has come up with a virtual fencing solution applicable to cattle and sheep farming. Using a GPS system to define fence boundaries and a specially designed collar that alerts the animal to the fact that it has reached the “fence”
  16. 16. GPS Stock Tracking • Monitor Stock grazing • Alerts for dog attack and theft • Science and pasture management trials
  17. 17. Over Complicated Seeders
