xarvio Digital Farming Solutions by BASF won the Innovations Program in the Plant and Soil Science category at the Ag in Motion Farm in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

“With xarvio, we use innovative technology to help farmers improve and automate crop production, efficiently, profitably and sustainably,” says Warren Bills, Canada commercial operations lead for xarvio in BASF’s Agricultural Solutions division. “We are honored to have been given this award, and grateful that xarvio’s Scouting app has been recognized for its contributions to Canadian farming.”

The xarvio Scouting app uses instant photo recognition to identify and map weed and disease threats in fields, enabling growers to efficiently identify threats so they can better manage their crop production. The Scouting app is powered by advanced machine learning algorithms that continually improve precision and functionality through artificial intelligence and data sharing. xarvio Scouting supports farmers in efficiently monitoring fields for diseases, weeds and leaf damage using a smartphone camera.

The Ag in Motion Innovations Program presented by TD Canada Trust and in partnership with Saskatoon Regional Economic Development Authority (SREDA), celebrates the latest innovations in the Saskatchewan agriculture industry. The Plant and Soil Science category of the Innovations Program recognizes new technologies that help with disease prevention and diagnosis or increasing plant quality and yield.

Ag in Motion is a three-day outdoor farm expo taking place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, that showcases the newest technology and innovations in agriculture. Marking its fifth year, Ag in Motion features live demonstrations of field equipment, crop plots and interactive agribusiness exhibits.

The xarvio Scouting app is part of a suite of independent digital farming products marketed under xarvio Digital Farming Solutions. The xarvio offering also includes xarvio Field Manager, which combines the standard visualization of field zones with three cutting-edge features—Field Monitor, Spray Timer and Zone Spray—to provide growers and agronomists with tools to improve crop production economically and sustainably, e.g., by automatically identifying the optimal time and dose of fungicide applications.
