Farmstar - Optimise nitrogen input thanks to satellite data


What is Farmstar?

For more than 20 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 Terres 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.

  • Consistent guidance - Regular crop monitoring and farming advice
  • Adaptable - Compatible with almost any equipment for variable rate application of inputs within the field
  • Compatibility with basic systems - Available in a simplified format to support manual spraying (for tractors without variable rate application devices)
  • User-friendly portal - Available on computer, smartphone and tablets
