Tillett and Hague Technology provide computer vision guidance and control technology for the agricultural and related industries. We develop and manufacture complete control systems for machinery manufacturers who wish to provide their customers with the very best in precision guidance.
Most applications are concerned with field crop protection, usually weed control. Of these the most common is inter-row guidance of cultivators between crop rows where a farmer wishes to reduce herbicide input. Our technology reduces operator stress, provides higher accuracy, higher speeds and facilitates multi-bout operation for even higher work rates. Over 700 inter-row vision guided systems have been sold using our technology.
As herbicide use becomes increasingly restricted there has been much interest in using exactly the same well proven inter-row technology to guide band spraying equipment. This allows operators to apply different products and different doses between and on top of crop rows thus increasing the flexibility with which existing herbicides can be used.
Our other more sophisticated applications involve locating and tracking individual crop or weed plants and treating them mechanically, chemically or with a biological control. In many cases these facilitate environmentally friendly methods of crop protection that would not be practical without our technology.
