BASF Digital Farming (BASF) has signed an agreement with AGvisorPRO to provide farmers, who have identified in-field problems using the xarvio Scouting application (app) on their smartphone, with expanded access to a local, accredited agronomic advisors.
The agreement pairs the capabilities of two digital farming applications – BASF Digital Farming’s Xarvio Scouting with AGvisorPRO. Both apps were Ag In Motion Innovation Program award winners in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
Scouting users will be able to share pictures they took of an in-field problem, such as unknown weeds, diseases, or insects, with a virtual agronomic advisor to learn about solutions. In the xarvio Scouting app, users can choose to connect to agriculture domain experts by simply touching the AGvisorPRO button embedded in the app.
Xarvio Scouting users will be able to access AGvisorPRO advisors, their BASF sales representative, and the BASF AgSolutions Customer Care team through the app for the 2021 growing season.
