Meet Atfarm: Yara's appfor digital farming
Learn more about the web and mobile app built from Yara’s ambition to help farmers feed the world more sustainably.
Efficiency is the future of digital agriculture
As a global leader in nitrogen (N) fertilizer production, Yara’s key ambition in the next decade is to build a nature-positive food future. An essential part of achieving this goal is to use resources efficiently to enable farmers everywhere to feed the global population in a more sustainable way.
Yara Research and Development created Atfarm in 2018 to help farmers reach these goals.
“Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE) is one of the most significant challenges mankind faces if we are to reduce carbon and nutrient emissions yet feed a growing global population.”
Dr Alastair Leake
Director of Policy at the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust in England
Better nitrogen efficiency for every farmer
Atfarm helps farmers use precious resources like nitrogen fertiliser more efficiently with the help of advanced satellite technology and vegetation indexes.
Though precision techniques have been used in agriculture for decades, Atfarm was created to be as easy to use and understand as possible.
The web and mobile versions of Atfarm reduce the complexities of Variable N-Rate Application, Nutrition Planning, and Satellite Monitoring into 1 app.
Digital solutions for every stage of the season
Atfarm helps farmers make informed decisions about on-field nutrition from seeding to harvest.
- Nutrition Planning
- N-Photo Analysis
- Variable N-Rate Application
- N-Tester BT

What do Atfarm users have to say?
Atfarm is very simple to use, taking just 10 minutes to load all my field boundaries over the 2200 hectares of the farm. I like to use satellite imagery to scout for any management issues.
The maps are a very visual way of picking out differences in growth and development to help prioritize decisions. There are plenty of products being developed for farmers, but some do not deliver and I wouldn’t recommend them, however, I would recommend farmers to Atfarm.
