“Xarvio has two platforms, Scouting and Field Manager. With Scouting you can take a picture of a weed, or an insect or a leave infected, send it and receive an answer saying which kind of weed, pest or disease is. Xarvio works with artificial intelligence, with our own image bank, but retro-feeding it with the images that farmers and agronomist capture and send”, Jorge Pitton, Technical Development manager from BASF told to eFarmNewsAr.com. The other platform, he added, is Field Manager, a paid service, that give spraying recommendations and that is able to use information coming from combines (yield maps) or satellites images to bring useful information for planning the farm labors.

All of this in only three days”, an enthusiastic Pitton said. He added that more than 800,000 farmers around the world are already working with Xarvio.
