Dr. Anja Klatt, Senior Manager of Government Affairs at BASF outlined BASF’s efforts in advancing sustainable practices in agriculture, such as the development of a new species of wheat: resilient hybrids which can thrive in a wide range of environments, provide a higher yield, improved profits, all without the need to expand farmland. In cooperation with Bosch, BASF is also developing a Smart Spraying solution for targeted weed control, involving smart cameras which can detect and identify types of weed, and the right treatment to get rid of them. Finally, Dr. Klatt also described a field manager app of BASF, called Xarvio, which develops digital solutions for crop optimization and the digitalization of agriculture.
