Digital crop protection as a complete solution BASF presents xarvio Digital Farming Solutions and for the first time xarvio HEALTHY FIELDS at Agritechnica 2019

With xarvio HEALTHY FIELDS farmers receive an optimized crop protection strategy including professional applications
Bosch and BASF present new intelligent applications for the targeted use of operating resources
xarvio SCOUTING and xarvio FIELD MANAGER support farmers with new functions throughout the season
Agriculture is facing major challenges worldwide: In some regions, demand for food and feed is growing rapidly, while in others conditions for production are not satisfactory. In Germany and other European countries, sustainability and transparency are in the public focus. In response to these challenges, xarvio Digital Farming Solutions by BASF is developing digital applications that make agriculture worldwide more efficient and sustainable. At Agritechnica 2019, the world’s largest trade fair for agricultural technology, in Hannover, Germany, xarvio presents its latest innovations at the «xarvio Field of Vision» booth in hall 15 from November 10 to 16, 2019.

xarvio HEALTHY FIELDS offers farmers completely new possibilities in crop protection. «The recommended crop protection strategy of xarvio FIELD MANAGER will be carried out by an experienced contractor who is working with us. The farmer is relieved of complex work and can follow every single step transparently. If the disease-related leaf damages on a field at the end of a season are greater than agreed in advance, the farmer will receive compensation,» explained Tobias Menne, Head of BASF Digital Farming. Farmers and contractors can monitor transparently the risk of infestation, recommendations, the current status of application implementation and the documentation of measures at any time. Another advantage: «Normally, contractors are very well technically equipped and with xarvio they can therefore automatically adapt the crop protection measures to each field zone,» added Menne.

SMART SPRAYING and xarvio FIELD MANAGER optimize the use of crop protection products

At the xarvio booth, visitors can also experience other intelligent digital farming applications — such as the SMART SPRAYING, which is being developed in cooperation with Bosch. «With the help of camera sensors, the SMART SPRAYING will be able to differentiate between crops and weeds while crossing the field,» explained Andree-Georg Girg, Global Head Commercial Operations Digital Farming at BASF. In daily practice in the field, the SMART SPRAYING is connected to the xarvio FIELD MANAGER, which determines based on different parameters whether and which crop protection product in which quantity is required by the respective crop and when. NEVONEX from Bosch ensures a smooth and fast connection between FIELD MANAGER and SPRAYING.

Explore weed scanners, leaf damage analysis and more at SCOUTING Mountain

At «SCOUTING Mountain», visitors can also test the xarvio SCOUTING app in action: Thanks to state-of-the-art image recognition technology, xarvio SCOUTING enables the user to identify and quantify weeds, diseases and leaf damage of a plant, to determine the nitrogen status and to count and classify insects. Thanks to new functions, the xarvio SCOUTING can now scan and document multiple weeds and determine the average amount of plants per square meter post- emergence.

Visitors can also learn how xarvio FIELD MANAGER works. xarvio FIELD MANAGER is a digital product that makes it easier for farmers to make agronomic decisions in various areas. The goal: more efficient and sustainable cultivation to make the most of every field zone.
