xarvio Digital Farming Solutions® and HELM Software announce platform connection to support German farmers in season 2023/24


  • Easy and fast exchange of field data
  • Increased convenience, input efficiency and productivity


Cologne and Ladenburg, Germany – xarvio® Digital Farming Solutions and HELM Software announce the connection of their leading digital platforms for season 2023/24. Farmers using HELM-Software will be able to conveniently and securely exchange field data with xarvio® FIELD MANAGER to optimize crop production.


By connecting the platforms, farmers will no longer need to manually enter the same information into both systems. This not only saves them time, but also avoids potential for input errors. All changes made to field data in HELM-Software can be transferred to xarvio FIELD MANAGER with one click, so an up-to-date view of crop production is always available. The exchange of data between the platforms offers farmers more convenience, saves time and supports a more efficient use of inputs.


By linking to xarvio FIELD MANAGER, users of the HELM-Software have access to an advanced crop optimization platform that supports them from seeding to harvest. Its proven agronomic intelligence provides tailored, timely and precise recommendations for the management of individual field zones, considering crop type, crop growth stages, weather conditions, and pest and disease pressure.

A key feature of xarvio FIELD MANAGER is its variable application maps for seeding, crop protection and nutrition tasks, which can be created for individual fields and sent to machine terminals for implementation. Variable application maps ensure that crop protection product is used in the right place and in the right quantity.


Henrich Meier, xarvio country manager for Germany at BASF Digital Farming, comments: “Better connectivity between precision farming solutions will help farmers manage inputs more efficiently to improve crop health, yield and profitability while supporting sustainability. With agriculture nowadays more complex than ever, it’s essential that digital farming technologies work together seamlessly, which is why the connection between xarvio FIELD MANAGER and HELM-Software brings real added value.”


Uwe Helm from HELM-Software, adds: “The field file is the foundation of all digital decision-making aids in the field. By matching data with the precision farming solution of xarvio FIELD MANAGER, our customers can seamlessly switch between the systems."
