The technology for GeoSelect was developed in-house at HARDI Australia's headquarters in South Australia by a team of experts in the organisation's Innovation department. The development team spent over two years developing, fine-tuning and testing the product.
GeoSelect reduces the costs and environmental impact of herbicide use, saves time, machine depreciation costs and soil compaction. Data is collected from every field image and machine task performed. The data can be used for many purposes including weed mapping, proof of placement and predictive analysis.
GeoSelect uses a drone, satellite, or even a manned aircraft to provide centimetre-accurate geo-referenced imagery of the area to be sprayed. The sprayer uses data directly from the drone or satellite.
