Since October 2014, Euralis has been offering a new innovative service to farmers: Farmstar Expert technology, in partnership with Airbus and assisted by the Arvalis and Cetiom technical institutes. It enables farmers to control the nitrogen fertilisation of their straw crops (wheat, barley) and rapeseed more precisely, to manage protein levels and to prevent certain diseases:“This new service is an innovative solution, helping our farmers to control their production with greater precision, in line with our Progress Contract approach,” says Cédric Poeydomenge, Euralis Technical Director.
