Drones have become a very useful tool for growers in Bundaberg, Queensland, in the fight against weeds, insect pests and diseases.

Around those herbicide-resistant breeding grounds, such as irrigation hydrants, along fence lines, on roadways and in difficult to access areas, herbicides are now being drone sprayed.

Getting onto these areas quickly and efficiently ensures resistance build-up can be stopped or slowed down.

The Soil Wealth/ICP team is learning from Jamin Fleming, owner of OzTech Drones, about the many practical uses for drones.
