  • WeedScan uses artificial intelligence to identify, report and control weeds.
  • A cooperative approach to weed action Australia wide
  • The app will be launched in 2023

Weeds cost our agriculture industry as much as $5 billion a year, which is why identifying and reporting harmful weeds is vital for managing our landscapes.

But help is on the way! WeedScan, a free Australia-wide community weed identification, alert, recording and communication system will launch in 2023.

WeedScan will identify weeds using artificial intelligence. Users including landholders, community groups, weed officers and other interested stakeholders will be able to create, view and share records and engage with others to quickly identify priority weeds and improve weed control.

WeedScan will also link users with weed biology and management information relevant to their location and allow them to notify state and local government of new weed incursions.
