• xarvio™ HEALTHY FIELDS awarded as Best Innovation in Digital Farming;
• Award is one of the most important and renowned in the agricultural industry worldwide.

The prestigious annual award, now in its 14th year, celebrates best-in-class scientific, technological and leadership initiatives. The award is regarded as one of the agricultural industry’s most prized honors.

From a highly competitive field comprising a short list of eight entries from around the world, an independent judging panel of industry experts selected xarvio HEALTHY FIELDS for its unique and market leading approach to providing smart, precision digital farming solutions.

Launched this year in Germany and France, HEALTHY FIELDS is a unique outcome-based digital solution that provides a tailored, field and season specific crop protection strategy for winter wheat that guarantees leaf health and yield success at the start of the season for a fixed price. The strategy calculates the risk level for each field zone using highly proven algorithms that consider agronomic information entered by the farmers and variables, e.g. growth stage modelling, forecast weather conditions and disease risks. Based on targeted application and zone maps, xarvio HEALTHY FIELDS is also contributing to biodiversity and sustainability.

“The Crop Science Award is a stamp of approval for creativity and innovation by our Digital Farming organization. We are very pleased to receive the award for xarvio HEALTHY FIELDS and the associated appreciation of our achievements. It underlines how important digital solutions are for the future of agriculture. I would like to thank our dedicated team that made this possible,” said Vincent Gros, President BASF Agricultural Solutions. “We are sincerely honored and look forward to continuing to grow our business with digital solutions and further enhance our market leading solution.”

The award comes at a time when xarvio HEALTHY FIELDS has delivered a guaranteed success rate this season of 100% to its customers and is introducing new features for season 2021. These include a self-service crop protection option for farmers that own and use VRA (variable rate application) enabled equipment for crop protection and a plant health guarantee for barley. Both features have been developed following feedback and engagement with farmers.
