App which can be downloaded for free (does require email address) which allows you to take photo of the plant & it will identify the plant in seconds. Very useful on farms to identify different weeds that maybe present so they can be controlled in the best & most environmentally friendly manner & allows for reduced competition from weeds in pasture / crop
