Bilberry: Green-on-green spot spraying

The Bilberry intelligent spot spraying system uses an embedded camera network, artificial intelligence and deep learning software to identify weeds in crop - making it the perfect addition to your Miller Nitro.

How Bilberry works on a Miller Nitro

1. The camera analyses the field and provides continuous pictures to the embedded computer.
2. The embedded computers uses a combination of artificial intelligence and agriculture knowledge to provide fast and accurate weed detection analysis in real-time. It generates weed identifications and cell activations on the spray map.
3. In the Miller Nitro cab display, the operator gets full control of the system and can select the weeds to target, the crops to protect and configure the system’s accuracy. The console allows for individual nozzle control for more precision.

Bilberry cameras can be fitted to selected Miller Nitro booms using an air-actuated folding mechanism.


An embedded computer, linked to the cameras, uses proprietary software to communicate with the sprayer to analyse images of the field in real-time, recognising weed species present within green crops.
The system has high development algorithms allowing users to identify specific crops such as: Broadleaf in cereals, grass and blue lupins.
The on-board computer controls spray nozzles in real-time to identify and only spray chemicals on identified weeds.
Cut your chemical expenses by spraying only where weeds are present.
Minimise refill trips and maximise productivity by reducing the number of filling time.

Experience a new level of spot spraying with Miller Nitro and Bilberry

Experience live crop data, green-on-green weed detection, and future planning with weed mapping.

An embedded computer, linked to the cameras, uses proprietary software to communicate with the sprayer to analyse images of the field in real-time, recognising weed species present within crops.

This full integration also allows users to easily change from spot to blanket spraying.


High-quality RGB (red, green, blue) cameras capture up to 16 images p/second. Mounted in an IP67 impact-resistant aluminium housing.
Miller Truss booms: 36m & 41.15m. Pommier booms: 41m & 48m.
Every 3m.
3m x 3m.
User defined. Suggested: 80 degrees with 500mm nozzle spacing. 65 degrees with 250mm nozzle spacing.
High-powered, intelligent computer modules process large amounts of data in real-time, with patented weed identification software. Mounted in an IP67 impact-resistant aluminium housing.
Provides power to computers and cameras and is the junction between the componentry mounted on the boom and the in-cab console. Mounted in an IP67 impact-resistant aluminium housing.
Allows remote access for product support, software upgrades and algorithm updates.
Collects detection messages from computers and sends nozzle/section commands over the integrated network to the boom’s rate controller. Interacts with the GPS, providing weed mapping information and proof of placement. Allows users to change active crop type, sensitivity and other settings.
All power supply has custom-made cables to integrate into Miller Nitro wiring. Includes full fuse protection and is easy to check and service.
Designed and manufactured in Australia (McIntosh Distribution), this unique system allows for compact transport and storage of cameras. Air-operated cylinders provide automatic lifting and folding.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Bilberry Intelligent Spot Spraying System?

The Bilberry Intelligent Spot Spraying System is a cutting-edge technology that enables precise and targeted spraying of weeds in agricultural fields. It combines advanced camera imaging, artificial intelligence algorithms, and precise spray application to optimise herbicide usage and minimise environmental impact.

This leads to improved coverage and reduced drift at higher speeds.
IntelliSpray II™ is available exclusively on Miller Nitro sprayers.

Will the Billberry system spray every weed in my paddock?

The camera must first see the weed to be able to identify it.
A two-part spray strategy is strongly recommended for the best spray coverage. This strategy allows the system to detect any weeds it may have missed due to weeds being too small or overshadowing crop/stubble.

How can I fit Bilberry on my Miller Nitro?

At this stage, Bilberry is a factory-fit option only for Miller Nitro and we are not able to retro-fit.
Ask your local Miller dealer to include a Bilberry system when you enquire about your new sprayer.

Can you use the Miller Nitro & Bilberry system at the same time?

Bilberry works in conjunction with Miller Nitro and IntelliSpray II™, allowing operators to easily switch between blanket spraying and spot spraying without removing the system, all from the comfort of the cab.

What is the recommended sprayer speed to use with the Bilberry system?

A maximum of 25km p/hour is achievable, however for optimal data processing and full efficacy of chemical application, a speed of 20km p/hour is recommended.

Can I use the Bilberry system at night?

For green-on-brown applications, night spraying is possible with the addition of a night light kit. For green-on-green applications, daylight hours are recommended for best results as night is not suitable.

Does stubble affect the performance of the Bilberry system?

Yes, it does. The higher the stubble load, the more chance of it over-shadowing weeds, making it difficult for the cameras to see, identify and spray.

Is there an ongoing charge to use the Bilberry system with Miller Nitro?

Yes, Bilberry uses a subscription model to use its system. Several pricing options are available depending on your cropping program and usage.

Even with paying an annual subscription, will I save on chemical usage?

Yes. Intelligent spot spraying with Bilberry has shown to reduce chemical usage by up to 93%, offsetting your subscription costs. Note, the potential amount saved will vary depending on what chemical is used.

What does the annual Bilberry subscription give me?

Continual software updates and algorithm improvements.
