OneSoil and BASF collaborate to provide farmers with precise field boundaries in xarvio FIELD MANAGER

Belarus-based AgTech startup OneSoil and BASF agreed to cooperate on field boundaries detection. OneSoil developed the technology that allows detecting field boundaries with a 5-meter accuracy using satellite images. The new technology further enhances the simplicity of BASF's xarvio™ Field Manager. Farmers can now select their fields in the xarvio Field Manager mobile app by just tapping on their fields.

xarvio™ Field Manager is a digital product helping farmers to improve and automate their crop production. The goal: produce crops more efficiently and sustainable to get the most out of each field zone. The farmer always knows what's happening on his fields and can use inputs, such as crop protection products, with greatest efficiency. The xarvio Field Manager is personalized to fit the needs of every single farmer.

"Our products are developed with farmers for farmers. It is key for us that our digital products are intuitive and easy to understand to generate the greatest benefit for the farmer," said Andree-Georg Girg, Global Head Commercial Operations Digital Farming at BASF. "The technology takes us a step further in Europe and North America to simplify field entries and save farmers' time."
OneSoil uses Sentinel-2 satellite images with a 10-meter resolution. Data on different regions of the world is updated every three to five days. All satellites photos are cleaned of snow, clouds, shadows and other artifacts; this ensures the accuracy of the subsequent operations. To develop an automatic field recognition technology, OneSoil manually marked out several tens of thousands of fields. Then the Data Science team built the machine learning algorithm that helped OneSoil to find 60 million fields in the US and Europe.
