Digital Farming Tools – Increasing Productivity and Promoting Sustainable Practices
As different as the types of agriculture and the philosophies of individual farms may be, each season farmers are faced with the challenge of using their resources economically, protecting their crops and running their farms competitively in the long term.
It doesn’t matter which factors influence agriculture throughout the year: for every farm, the foundation of a good yield is early information and optimal seasonal planning.
BASF's digital solutions support agricultural enterprises on several levels. Scientifically based data and predictive models are available for seasonal planning and individual recommendations for plant protection are made promptly on demand. This makes processes more efficient, saves resources and minimizes the risk of economic losses.
