Spot Spraying Map

We were asked by a local farmer who farms land within a SSSI area if we could use our drone to find and mark weeds for spot spraying using the farms own equipment, the answer was yes, of course we can!

Our drone imagery is of such a high quality that we can use our software and AI intelligence to locate, mark and then create a spot spraying map for all the areas where weed is located. This is then exported and sent to the tractor and sprayer and controls the sprayer nozzles through the existing ISOBUS terminal.

By utilising spot spraying and variable rate applications means only the areas needing treatment are sprayed, this results in large savings of chemical which in turn saves money. It also means that areas not requiring treatment are not sprayed and any wildlife or habitats are not harmed, it also means the run off risk is reduced or eliminated benefitting watercourses and fish.

The flights are easy to complete subject to weather and doesn’t require us to walk across the fields (unless we need to, to stay within VLOS range of the drone!)

Spot spraying maps will be an everyday part of farming in the future with more targeted applications, we are here to assist you in getting these maps produced and into your equipment.

The costs of the flights are usually more than covered through the cost savings generated through reduced chemical usage.

Riding Arena Repair

We are often asked “ What can we do to fix our arena surface” and the answer is generally “Plenty!)

Riding arenas are generally used heavily and maintained to the minimum from our own experience which means that over time they require repairs and more involved maintenance. This can be from simple surface remixing to drainage repairs or even full surface replacement.
