picture perfect

One of the AiCPlus Cameras used to identify weeds Spraying only weeds while piloting a sprayer through your paddock at 30km/h – and saving significant amounts on chemicals and water as a result – could be a reality for Australian farmers by the time summer rolls around.That is the promise made by Dutch agricultural technology developer Agrifac, with the local launch of its AiCPlus system this month, for expected delivery in time for summer spraying.Developed with French tech innovator Bilberry in Australia and the Netherlands, the system uses artificial intelligence to recognise weed species from photographs taken by an array of cameras spaced at 3 metre intervals along the boom.Once identified, computer algorithms consider factors such as the height of the boom, the speed of the sprayer and the…

seed destruction

Independent commercial testing has confirmed a weed seed kill rate of 99 per cent plus with the latest version of the Integrated Harrington Seed Destructor (iHSD) at various harvester speeds.The new vertical, mechanical direct drive iHSD was released earlier this year following the successful testing last harvest of eight vertical units fitted to a range of harvester brands, including John Deere and New Holland. It can also be fitted to Case IH harvesters.Invented by WA grower Ray Harrington and developed by UniSA with investment from the Grains Research & Development Corporation, the iHSD has undergone continuing development by SKF Engineering and DeBruin Engineering, together with national distributor McIntosh Distribution.The new vertical system uses the same mill set as the original hydraulic version, but the big attraction for growers is…

honda unveils egx

The integrated DC power unit eGX, designed for plate compactors Honda is developing its new eGX power system as an advanced zero-emissions electrified power unit, showing the prototype at the bauma 2019 construction industry exhibition.Development of the eGX has so far centred on satisfying the needs of the construction machinery market, the company says, working to make its equipment able to be used in a range of environments, such as underground tunnels or in night construction work undertaken near residential areas, with a primary focus on machinery that operates under high vibration, such as rammers and plate compactors.The motor for the eGX is equipped with a three-phase brushless DC motor, which was developed exclusively for this model.Honda says that it offers high efficiency and high power through outstanding insulation…

process is a keeper

Naturo CEO Jeff Hastings says his company’s new technology is a world first and can keep milk fresh for 60 days A Queensland-based company says it has created an alternative to pasteurisation that will extend the shelf-life of refrigerated milk to 60 days minimum.Naturo, based in Coolum, says the technology is a “world first”, opening up new opportunities for export via shipping, rather than by air transport.Company founder and chief executive Jeff Hastings says the process kills pathogens without relying on heat, instead leaving the milk much closer to its original state.“Our patented process is the only known method that kills Bacillus cereus, a common but unwanted spore-forming bacterium in milk that produces toxins causing vomiting or diarrhoea,” he claims.“In our most recent independent scientific testing, the milk remained…
