In following up from our last podcast where we got an overview of the new WeedSeeker, in this podcast we catch up with Dalby Rural Supplies Precision Ag Specialist Jeremy Jones about the new WEEDit Quadro.

We also catch up with Steven Mirsky. He’s a Research Ecologist with the US Department of Agriculture and is a member of the US group, GROW (Getting Rid of Weeds). The group recently did a national farm tour in Australia, learning about our farming systems and how we control weeds.
