Francisco Iaconis describes a new system for detecting weeds in fields and acquiring data to determine crop health. All in the same cheap and easy-to-install system. The implementation of this system in Argentina could save 29 billion liters of fresh water used to dissolve glyphosate, a controversial herbicide. It's equivalent to the amount of water that a city of 650 thousand people consumes in a year. His team came up with this award-winning idea at an international competition called "24 hours of innovation" organized by French and Canadian universities. It was chosen from 200 teams representing competitors from over 10 countries.
