GeoSAT – Agriculture

Agriculture

Actionable insights for precision agriculture.

Precision farming needs accurate, frequent and on-time signals to help detect changes to agricultural lands, monitor productivity and forecast yield levels.

We give you a global geographical scope and enhanced range of scientific-quality agricultural imagery and information with a variety of resolutions, spectral bands and sensor types. We also offer value-added products which allow you to calculate crops health indices, such as NDVI, EVI, CVI and GNDVI.

Medium Resolution (MR) Product:

The perfect tool for large parcels and national phenomena monitoring, such as drought assessment, crop type mapping, food security and overstock risk assessment.


Very High and High Resolution (VHR & HR) Product:

Your ideal solution for intra-field surveillance, access to information inside small parcels <0.05 ha, disease detection, water stress, yield estimation, information on irrigation, fertilizers, pesticides, inventory and plot delineation.

GEOSAT’s MR solution has been on an agricultural mission for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), which has used GEOSAT 1 and its twin UK-DMC-2 as its main satellite imagery source to monitor and classify more than 100 crop types every day across the U.S. since 2011. As a part of the program, the USDA is provided with complete coverage of the contiguous U.S. every 15 days during the growing season (April to October), more than 90% cloud-free and with daily acquisitions. Every day, for six months out of each year, more than 1-million km2 of cloud-free data is delivered and orthorectified with <1 pixel GSD accuracy, which allows for high-quality multi-temporal analyses. Most of this data is delivered in less than 24 hours from acquisition.


Timely coverage of the United States’ (CONUS) vegetation during the growing season, from May to September, showing the phenological evolution of the crops. See some examples of our coverage:

Crop Plots precision analysis


The frequency of fresh imagery provided to USDA, allows for the management of crop field irrigation with unprecedented precision. The status of every 20×20-m area is assessed every two days and irrigation can be commanded with incredible precision, resulting in huge water savings and a large increase in crop yields. This near-daily monitoring allows for the early detection of crop illnesses, enabling the farmer to take quick action to minimize crop damage.
