WEED-IT Isobus implementation certified by the AEF
WEED-IT recently passed the Isobus test of the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) successfully. WEED-IT is now officially certified for Isobus operations and the first precision spot spraying system to be part of the AEF Isobus Database! With Isobus, users can control their WEED-IT system from their own terminal in the tractor or self-propelled sprayer and prevent unnecessary spraying with section control.
WEED-IT can potentially save Canadian farmers money
In an article on Canadian website Grainews, Jesper Voois from our distributor Croplands recently explained how WEED-IT can potentially save farmers money and, perhaps equally importantly, help farmers afford the fight against herbicide-resistant weeds.
Why WEED-IT relies on car and truck technology
There’s no such thing as out of the blue! Why WEED-IT relies on car and truck technology. WEED-IT Quadro, the newest precision spraying technology from Dutch selective weed spraying specialist Rometron, uses blue LED-lighting to identify weeds and plants. But it isn’t the colour that counts, says the company’s founder and owner, it’s the technology.
WEED-IT Quadro introduces a new set of features
WEED-IT introduces a new set of features that enables WEED-IT Quadro users to use their system for full coverage spraying. Another, world’s first (!) feature is stepless nozzle control technology to continuously apply the optimal application rate.
New Team - New Challenges
The Rometron WEED-IT team of engineers has recently been expanded with our newest employee Bart Lammers and the two interns Maurice de Koning and David Bergevoet. Bart just finished his study Electrical Engineering focussed on Robotics & Mechatronics at the University of Twente and Maurice and David both study embedded software development. Together with team lead Alwin Meenderink, they are working on new technologies to transfer WEED-IT data communication to the cloud. The engineers have also teamed up with embedded systems and IoT-specialist Inspiro.
