A drone that identifys weed species in areas of the field (basically replace human walking/scouting).
The purpose of the drone is to create a 2 or 3 chemistry brew recipe to cover the field with the appropriate chemicals. Then on a sprayer you can have an injection system that will inject the needed chem to hit the infested spot appropriately.
The goal behind this is to limit the amount of chemicals needed that may actually cause a negative yield reaction to the crop being applied to (an example would be the ding to corn caused by Python, yet if you have a problem weed in an area you’re willing to sacrifice yield to control the weed for the future)
