With the rapid development of IT solutions, farmers can monitor the development of agricultural crops online, predict crop yields, effectively manage a land bank and plan agricultural operations.
Satellite monitoring is the observation of the development of crops during the growing season using satellite images. They are used to calculate vegetation indices and assess the quality and quantity of vegetation on the site. This is a very laborious and time-consuming process, especially when it comes to large areas. Satellite monitoring replaces field observations and solves the following tasks:
- determination of the boundaries of the field and the area of the land bank;
- assessment of the use of territories;
- percentage of uncultivated land;
- determination of the structure of cultivated areas;
- determination of the dynamics of biomass growth;
- prompt identification of problem areas;
- monitoring of weather conditions;
- scouting management.
Field monitoring is needed to obtain comprehensive information about the condition of the soil and plants. With its help, the level of germination, the degree of infection with diseases and weeds is determined. Based on the data obtained, management decisions are made on soil processing, fertilization and pest control. With their help, you can get the most accurate data in a short period of time. Also, such analysis tools as leaf diagnostics and soil sampling show high efficiency.
The use of operational satellite monitoring for the analysis of agricultural crops opens up wide opportunities for agricultural companies to operate more efficiently. Satellite monitoring allows you to manage your fields online without leaving your office or home, receive notifications of any changes in the crop status by e-mail, and take the necessary measures in a timely manner. In addition, our programs provides a forecast of crop yields, analyzing data for the current season and comparing them with the past.
The latest high-tech satellite sensors provide images with higher spatial resolution, providing accurate, reliable and timely data, as well as a wide range of benefits for land-use change detection, precision farming, emergency response, social research and other related fields.
With high-resolution imagery, you can track vegetation changes, receive real-time weather updates, manage scout tasks, identify problem areas and receive notifications, while significantly saving time and money. After analyzing the received data, the system notifies the user of all changes and possible risks, providing the ability to process the fields appropriately, when and where necessary, to optimize the use of resources and ensure timely decision-making.
From the moment of the sowing campaign to the start of the harvest, agricultural producers are more interested in the state of crops in the fields: how the culture is developing, the grain is ripe, etc. In order to quickly respond to any risks arising from the development of crops, farm managers need to have reliable information about their condition at hand. This will make it possible to more effectively coordinate and control the agronomic service, as well as make informed decisions.
By combining all this data into one screen, farmers will not only save money and resources for field monitoring, but also increase yields and profits.
Satellite monitoring of crops allows tracking the positive and negative dynamics of crop development. The difference in the dynamics of the vegetation index indicates a disproportion in development within the same crop or field, indicates the need for analysis or additional work in certain areas. A feature of this technology is that it allows you to simultaneously monitor the state of crops over a large area, to form a large statistical base for comparisons based on historical monitoring data.
No solution can analyze a field better than Latitudo 40, with tools to accurately assess the health of each portion of the land or to count and analyze plants, detect weeds or locate crops in danger.
