The precision farming technologies were designed to facilitate and optimize the management of different processes and in the last 5-7 years, the agro-industrial complex has experienced a boom in smart farming technologies.
Smart agriculture is a concept based on the use of innovative solutions by farmers to automate agricultural activities, increase yields, and improve financial performance. Currently, the technologies allow managing fields remotely with the use of different devices or via the analyzed satellite imagery, like the Crop Monitoring tool by EOS Data Analytics. Even drones have become widely used in agriculture as they are equipped with cameras and sensitive sensors that allow them to inspect fields and monitor crop health. Drones and tractors will be able to collect information for the development of maps, help make up a fertilizer application schedule, and even guard fields.
Another big part of precision agriculture technologies is satellite imagery.
Space monitoring is one of ag technologies that make it possible to effectively track various aspects of agricultural activities. The application of space monitoring in the agro-industrial complex opens many possibilities. The easiest way to access the benefits of using satellite data is via the online tools with already built-in algorithms that analyze this information on-the-fly, as EOS Crop Monitoring.
Crop Monitoring is a tool that leverages satellite data to help farmers manage their fields easy, effectively and remotely. Most importantly, all the information they need is accessible on one screen, allowing to manage several fields simultaneously , saving resources on their monitoring, increasing yields and revenue. The main advantages of this tool when it comes to solving agricultural problems are efficiency, accuracy and visibility.
Satellites are already helping farmers assess the health of their crops, monitor their change easier and faster and have already proven their value and economic benefits. The future of agriculture might greatly depend on the use of satellite imagery, attracting more and more farmers to precision technologies.
