Better drift protection

October 2, 2019

Satacrop is a new platform offering improved mapping technology to better protect cotton and other crops from spray drift.

After a successful trial in Queensland’s Central Highlands around Emerald, the new mapping tool is available for the 2019-2020 summer season. Cotton Australia announced the release of SataCrop, in partnership with Precision Crop Technologies (PCT) in June.

Unlike CottonMap, which maps only cotton, SataCrop maps all crop types, allowing growers and applicators of all products to be better informed before spraying. The new technology requires growers to map their fields just once and has the added facility to import field boundaries from compatible software such as PCT, SST, Farmworks, John Deere and Agworld.

To use SataCrop, growers need to register by emailing Ben Boughton at PCT. The platform is easy to use and includes an instructional video which can be found on the website:
