Grain growers in the southern cropping region are being offered practical advice on the correct use of auto boom spray height control systems... The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has developed a Spray Height Control Fact Sheet which provides useful information on the types of auto height boom systems available, the importance of maintaining optimum height, set up considerations and calibration requirements... The Fact Sheet states that when properly adjusted, auto boom height control systems can allow the operator to focus on monitoring other machine functions, which improves spray accuracy and reduces operator fatigue...

I am the principle spray operator and, like the vast majority of broad acre farmers, I regularly apply pesticides including herbicides, insecticides and fungicides to control weeds, insects and crop disease... Pesticides are widely used in agriculture to control weeds, insects and crop disease, reducing labour, energy and water requirements, and optimising potential crop yield and ultimately farm income... The overall objective of the project was to promote the adoption of the best practice spray application process by engaging key stakeholders (including government, chemical and spray applicator manufacturers, researchers, farmers and spray operators) and by applying principles from around the world on ways to simplify pesticide application whilst maximising pesticide efficacy and field efficiency, and sustaining the environment...

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) come in a range of forms and sizes and these can have different uses.. The most appropriate roles for UAVs in broadacre cropping are still being determined.. According to experienced UAV pilot Martin Peters, from FarmingIT, there are a few certainties with UAVs: if licensing is required it is time-consuming and expensive; landings are nerve-racking; birds of prey can be a problem; you will never have as much computing power for data analysis as you want; and every day someone comes up with a new idea of how a UAV can be used for agriculture...
