Sow better, harvest more

Our Intelligent Planting Solution gives growers full control over the seeding process - from individual control of the amount of seed in each planting row to selective and uniform planting of each field area. The result: reduced costs and maximized yields.

Intelligent Planting combines xarvio's agronomic and digital expertise with software and proven hardware from Bosch's high-volume production. Bosch technology ensures optimal seeding based on satellite imagery and variable seeding maps, which are individually calculated for each field area by xarvio's algorithms.

What are the benefits of Intelligent Planting?

The innovative planting solution ensures optimum seed metering at all times - individually adapted to the fertility of the respective field area. In addition, Intelligent Planting also enables subsystem control. These include fertilizer application, opening and folding of the seed drill, and control of the air suspension.

The networked system uses map and sensor data to automatically determine the optimum seed and fertilizer rates in real time and apply them efficiently. Farmers not only benefit from the best possible land use and ideal plant growth thanks to precise seed spacing, but also save valuable resources such as seed, fertilizer and fuel. Intelligent Planting is also available as a retrofit solution and can be easily integrated into existing seed drills.


Wie funktioniert Intelligent Planting?

Intelligent Planting ermöglicht die Steuerung der Aussaat und Düngerausbringung in fester und variabler Menge, ohne dass eine manuelle Regulierung über ein Getriebe erforderlich ist. Feste Mengen können vom Fahrer direkt vom Traktor aus via Display festgelegt werden. Variable Mengen mit je nach Feldbereich unterschiedlichen Abständen zwischen den Saatkörnern werden automatisch mithilfe von Aussaat-, beziehungsweise Applikationskarten ausgebracht. Intelligent Planting sorgt dann in vier hochautomatisierten Schritten für eine optimale Verteilung auf dem Feld.

„With our soybeans, Intelligent Planting has paid for itself in seed and fertilizer savings alone within a year. That's not even counting the higher productivity. In corn, the productivity gain is even higher, as double seeding is particularly problematic here and is consistently avoided by Intelligent Planting. We've found that planting is extremely uniform, especially in curves.“

Benefit for farmers

Higher crop yields

The Intelligent Planting solution ensures optimal land use and ideal crop growth by ensuring correct plant spacing and avoiding overlap. Field tests have shown that this can increase crop yields by up to 13 percent, depending on the field and growing conditions.

Reduced costs

The intelligent and dynamic control of the applied seed and fertilizer quantities enables significant savings of up to 20 percent in the operating resources used (seed, fertilizer, fuel).

More comfort

Intelligent Planting makes life easier for farmers: The extensive automation of sowing and fertilizer use relieves you with a noticeable simplification of your work. In addition, you receive useful information via app, which makes all decisions around sowing much easier. This includes useful recommendations as well as exact documentation and analysis of all processes that have taken place.
