xarvio’s Field Manager delivers field specific crop management recommendations to a smart-phone – it will be shown for the first time at REAP.
Field Manager allows growers to download field zone specific variable application maps to get advice for the right dosage at the right field zone at the right time. It uses imaging technology and combines this with agricultural data to support crop optimisation.
xarvio is a BASF company and it will also be discussing at REAP new functionality for its free Scouting app, which enables growers and agronomists to accurately identify weed and disease threats in the fields using photo recognition via their smartphones. The supported crops include wheat, barley and oilseed rape, after diagnosis of the issue the farmer can access advice about the most appropriate treatments.
Further information about risk threat can also be gained via the community-based radar functionality.
Louis Wells, BASF Solutions and Services Manager, Agricultural Solutions, comments: “Field Manager is designed to aid decision-making from drilling right through to harvest. It applies weather, satellite and other third-party data information entered about the crop to model growth, disease and pest development specific to the crop and variety.”
The xarvio Scouting app is available for free in the App Store and Google Play. For more information about xarvio Digital Farming Solutions, please visit www.xarvio.com
