Our farmers

"The farm is facing up to the high level of social responsibility that comes from sharing tap water for irrigating vegetables with the surrounding communities and households. With RiverFox, we hope to optimize our irrigation processes while further improving our environmental impact."

"We grow around 350 hectares of vegetables with more than 20 crops and irrigate with pipe irrigation and sprinklers. [...] RiverFox helps us to improve our work processes and save water in the future."

"Some of our fields are very far apart. It is therefore difficult to keep track of soil moisture and precipitation over such a large area with such different regions. RiverFox enables us to get a quick assessment without having to drive to the individual fields every time."

Our partners

"In my irrigation trials in maize cultivation, the analyses of heliopas.ai clearly demonstrated the real differences in irrigation requirements for the various maize varieties. The results and the professional cooperation convinced me, so that we are now entering the third season with heliopas.ai go. [...] The alternatives available to us so far are expensive and only measure locally."

Research assistant at the Augustenberg Agricultural Technology Center

"This is also possible for specific sections of the field and, above all, without additional sensors in the field. This is exactly what is interesting for our customers, in addition to recording consumption quantities."

"RiverFox [...] seems suitable for planning my field inspections better in advance. Not only does it allow me to look at individual crops in a more targeted way and check the condition of the fields better, but it also gives the farmers clearer advice based on the individual areas."

Agricultural consultant of NüPA GmbH

"Right from the start, we were impressed by heliopas.ai's expertise in data science. As a reliable partner, they have enabled us [...] to achieve strong technical scaling. [...] We chose heliopas.ai because they have also independently developed and built their own solutions for data pipelines and data infrastructure through their research work. [...] This has made our in-house data pipeline more modular and technically more fault-tolerant. This means we are well equipped for the future and can react flexibly and quickly to market requirements."

"In 2023, we irrigated field section A as before and field section B strictly according to RiverFox. While the result of the scoring was virtually identical, RiverFox significantly reduced the effort required to organize and control the irrigation.
The software was also easy and intuitive to use.
We are therefore planning to use RiverFox for the entire breeding station in Dannstandt Schauernheim in 2024.
In addition, communication with the RiverFox team was fast, uncomplicated and went smoothly."
