Variable Rate Application Farmstar Wheat

Crop monitoring and Precision Farming insight

Farmstar is a service supporting your daily farming decision making.
Throughout the crop cycle, you receive agronomic recommendations directly usable for relevant decision making and action in the field.

For more than 15 years we have supported French farmers looking to optimise their yield, improve their harvest quality, rationalise fertiliser inputs and safeguard the environment. 

The service was co-developed by Airbus and Arvalis Institut du Végétal (French Technical Institute for Cereals) with the support of Terre-Inovia (French Technical Institute for Rapeseed Crop).

It combines satellite imagery with strong agronomic expertise. From seeding to harvest, Farmstar provides a complete range of advice for wheat, barley, rapeseed and rapeseed ‘s companion plant at intra-field scale, all perfectly aligned with the crop cycle.

What our Customers Say

“The advantage is that I use less fertiliser and less pesticide, which also means I spend less money,” explains Stéphane. His farming cooperative Axereal - the largest in France - sends him maps via the internet with up-to-date data regarding his crops. This information is used to determine the exact dosage of products his crops need.
