Record priority weeds in your local area to protect the environment, farms and communities


WeedScan is a free community priority weed identification, alert, recording and communication system that supports cooperative weeds action Australia-wide. WeedScan uses artificial intelligence to identify priority weeds. Users can create, view and share records through groups to improve weed control. WeedScan links users to weed biology and management information relevant to their location and allows them to notify state and local government of new weed incursions.

The WeedScan website and smartphone app will be officially launched in the second half of 2023.
