In our FAQ section you will find the right answers to most of your questions.
The face of agriculture has changed: tractors and combines are highly automated and crammed with a vast array of sensors. And already, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and even orbital satellites are becoming indispensable. The delivery of highly detailed field observations straight to a farmer’s tablet computer will soon become a standard in agriculture.
For xarvio™ it is very important to be very concrete and precise, as many terms are used to describe these scenarios and technologies, but also rather different ones (Precision Ag, Smart Ag, Ag 4.0 etc.). ‘Digital Farming’ is the specific term xarvio™ will use to talk about digitization in agriculture.
xarvio™ believes that, as technology advances, we must take full advantage of the benefits Digital Farming offers, especially in areas such as planting, fertilizing, water conservation and crop protection applications, in order to become more efficient and effective and thereby reduce the inputs required.
Specific field scripts will enable farmers to make informed planting, spraying and treatment decisions based on analytical algorithm recommendations. For example: field-specific herbicide recommendations that support proper stewardship and rotation of modes of action.
Through collection of vast amounts of data, thorough analysis and more calculated risk-taking, Digital Farming supports the farmer in using agricultural inputs only when needed and as efficiently as possible.
Digitalization will enable optimal agronomic decisions for each zone of a field. We will be able to unite yield and efficiency as never before.
Yes. Collaborating with channel partners as trusted advisors to maximize the strengths and expertise of xarvio™ and distributors and retailers is key to enabling farmers to move from precision to decision.
After downloading your application map in FIELD MANAGER, you will need to transfer the file to a USB stick. You can then plug this USB stick into your sprayer terminal to transfer the application map. Alternatively, you can move your application maps wirelessly using MyJohnDeere or Agrirouter.
Zone Spray allows simple creation of field-zone-specific application maps for fungicide and PGR applications. In order to deliver these field-zone-specific maps, our system calculates the current LAI absolute biomass for each zone of your field by frequently analyzing satellite images. Product dose rate can then be varied across the different biomass zones in your field.
Spray Timer notifies you automatically when the calculated time for Crop Protection applications is approaching, and it enables you to observe the risk status of each field. For you this means less planning effort, reduced risk of missing applications, and better prevention of diseases - in other words, less stress and healthier crops. The basis for all this is provided by our tried-and-tested risk models - with many years of market experience - and the automatic creation of field-specific maps that are ready for use on your terminal.
The calculation of disease alerts is based on weather and field data like current growth stage.
We consider all main diseases in the crops we are offering in the countries.
Infection conditions based on weather data are the most important factor for risk estimation. But the system is also considering BBCH, applied fungicides, variety, tillage, previous crop and seeding dates.
We analyze satellite data, risk models and data related to the field entered by the user plus our agronomic expertise.
Your data is stored in an amazon cloud, the best certified provider in the market.
Modern high-performance servers and certified service providers guarantee a high level of data security.
This depends on the contract. Please check the Terms and Conditions.
To create field specific maps and timing recommendations we need your local input.
