How Can WEED-IT Help Drastically Reduce the Amount of Chemicals It Uses

As an official WEED-IT Precision Spot Sprayer distributor, TAB AG continues to dedicate ourselves to providing innovative solutions to farmers. WEED-IT is a weed detection technology that applies chemicals only to the target vs spraying continuously, allowing a savings of up to 80% of chemicals annually.

WEED-IT Quadro once again sets the standards for precision spraying. Effective weed detection and elimination is becoming increasingly important in today’s growing environment with less precipitation, limitations on herbicides usage and resistant weeds.

 

Intelligent sensors sample the ground 40,000 times per second searching for living plant matter up to speeds of 15mph. Ground speed is measured and will adjust application timing so that the target is within the spray pattern.

How does WEED-IT work?

The WEED-IT system can be built onto any type and brand of ground glider & trailed sprayer, quad, orchard sprayer, toolbar, self-propelled sprayer, and even autonomous sprayers with working widths up to 36 m. Complete customization and expert fabrication.

The new WEED-IT Quadro refers to the four detection zones of every WEED-IT detection sensor, each accounting for 25 cm of the entire spray boom width. The extra small zones with improved optics make sure the system never misses any weed. Whereas this additional accuracy is easily missed by the human eye, the new blue LED-lighting is not. Blue LED’s have proven to be more sensitive to weeds and less sensitive to background noise and thus more efficient compared to the red LED-lighting used to date. Blue is the new color of the next generation of spot spraying technology.

WEED-IT is a plant detection technology at applies chemical only to the target instead of spraying bare ground.

Adding to the increased accuracy and efficiency is the new dual core processor for fast communication and high sampling frequency. It guarantees higher communication speeds that would be needed to enable VRA, weed and biomass mapping and working with application maps in the future.

​Intelligent sensors sample the ground 40,000 times per second searching for living plant matter up to speeds of 15mph. Ground speed is measured and will adjust application timing so that the target is within the spray pattern.

WEED-IT runs on a standard 12 volt system. Power is connected directly to the battery and runs to an interface box. The interface box does many tasks, one of them is to invert 12 volts up to 48 volts.

A low voltage system suffers high power loss over large distances, so to overcome this WEED-IT inverts 12 volts to higher voltage levels so that power loss across large 120ft booms is minimized.
