BASF supports farmers by offering xarvio FIELD MANAGER free of charge for the 2020 season
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, April 14, 2020 – BASF announced it will offer xarvio™ FIELD MANAGER free of charge to farmers in the U.S. and Canada for the 2020 season. xarvio FIELD MANAGER offers crop production solutions that allow farmers to monitor their fields through digital tools. As farmers across North America continue to provide the world with safe and nutritious food during this challenging time, this digital solution will help farmers maintain their operations with as little impact as possible.
“Especially now, farmers can benefit greatly by using digital tools to monitor their fields and stay connected with their staff and agronomy advisors when in-person contact and travel are limited,” said Warren Bills, Regional Commercialization Lead for BASF Digital Farming Solutions. “Farmers and advisors can gain greater efficiency when utilizing digital agronomy tools and recommendations to grow healthy crops, and we’re glad to offer our technology free of charge this growing season to farmers in North America.”
xarvio FIELD MANAGER is a digital crop optimization platform and mobile app offering field and field-zone-specific real-time information and recommendations on how to produce crops most efficiently. This solution gives farmers further access to timing and variable rate map applications in various crops for weed, disease and better pest management. Especially valuable is the new data exchange and cross-farm dashboard feature, which allows farmers and advisors to better collaborate within xarvio FIELD MANAGER without the need for in-person meetings. These features are also available in the xarvio app for mobile devices.
