Digital Farming

Digitalization has the power to transform agriculture. And make it more efficient, inclusive and sustainable. It’s vital for helping farmers feed the world’s growing population and manage changes in diet. And crucial to preserving scarce natural resources by helping adapt farming practices to address different conditions in different countries.  We are working with farmers to find the right balance of digital innovation, digitally-enabled products and practical on-field solutions, creating value for our customers and for the future of agriculture.  

What impacts do we aim for?

How do we achieve these impacts?

We are growing our agricultural know-how with digital solutions such as xarvio FIELD MANAGER for precise application of inputs and with Smart Spraying for targeted weed control.

Digital Farming

The future of farming is digital

Digitalization has immense potential for helping farmers achieve higher and better yields and is creating great opportunities for promoting resource-efficient and sustainable farming. Importantly, it has the capacity to reach vast numbers of farmers, including those in less developed countries.  Increasing knowledge and raising awareness of on-farm sustainability.  It can also help reduce the environmental impacts of global food production by enabling more precise application of crop protection products.
