xarvio SeedSelect evaluates soybean varieties based on how they build yield
BASF is introducing xarvio SeedSelect, a novel seed variety placement technology based on an algorithm derived from plot trial field research, local topographic and soil attributes, and variety-specific yield building characteristics.
Using advanced data and analysis methods, xarvio SeedSelect evaluates soybean varieties based on how they build yield, which provides a foundational understanding of what field characteristics will best support growth and matches them to growers' fields based on those characteristics.
Soybean success starts with understanding a field’s environment, and that means much more than weather.
“We have conducted trials across multiple fields with a lot of variability to isolate and understand the influence of subfield environments,” said Greg Ury, BASF Agronomist “We look at how a variety interacts with multiple attributes such as organic matter, cation exchange capacity (CEC), slope, and other factors that contribute to yield. This helps guide us in placement and management so we can make sure varieties are in fields where they belong and diminish the impact of unpredictable weather.”
With xarvio SeedSelect, retail seed professionals can confidently recommend the best seed for every acre.
“Seed selection is the most important factor in soybean yield and selecting the correct variety can be a complex and time-consuming process,” said Amy Pawlick, Digital Farming Manager for BASF. "With xarvio SeedSelect, retailers gain access to prescriptive variety selection and field placement, endeavoring to confidently improve growers' yield potential from the very first year."
xarvio SeedSelect utilizes an algorithm that considers influential topographic and soil attributes and their impact on soybean growth and development. When customer field data is paired with information about an individual variety's yield-building characteristics, the algorithm recommends the best Xitavo soybean seed varieties for a specific field’s characteristics. The outcome is an increased probability of successful product placement and performance.
