Satellite images shape future of agricolture

Unveiling the Magic of Satellite Imagery in Farming

Satellite images are like a farmer's third eye, offering a comprehensive view of the field from above. Before satellites, farmers had to climb high spots to inspect their crops. Now, with satellite technology, you can get a bird’s eye view, revolutionizing crop management

Enhancing Precision Farming

The tip of the iceberg.


Satellite imagery in agriculture today is mainly used in precision farming practices. Precision agriculture is considered the fourth agricultural revolution, following the advent of agricultural machinery, genetics and the use of chemical inputs. Enables change in agronomic management, i.e., based on the Data Decision Driver. Enables differentiated management of agronomic inputs such as seed, fertilization, pesticides, and tillage. Let's dive into how satellite imagery changes agronomic farm management

Monitoring Crop and Field Conditions in Real-Time

Satellite imagery has the ability to monitor crop development over time, allowing the detection of the occurrence of spatial variability in fields. You may be wondering, how do they accomplish this? Thanks to multispectral cameras, which allow the calculation of vegetation indices, such as NDVI, NDRE, EVI2 and many others that correlate with many crop parameters, such as crop height, Leaf Area Index, crop nitrogen content (one of our team members even published a paper on this!) , and more.

By analyzing such data, areas can be identified that can be managed differently through the use of prescription maps (one of our team members even published a paper on this!) that can be applied directly to tractors. In fact, such maps go to vary the agronomic input content based on the actual needs of the crops

Spotting Health Issues Early

Satellite imagery allows us to be able to identify portions of the field that exhibit difficulties that may be attributable to disease outbreaks, water stagnation, or the presence of weeds. This information is accessible at all times and most importantly remotely, even when there are adverse weather conditions that limit field inspections. An agronomist or agricultural technician with this telephonically accessible information can plan field visits and only to the field that manifests problems.

Predicting Yields Accurately

These technologies combined with artificial intelligence allows yield forecasting in advance, enabling the ability to plan field activities and related costs so as to generate ever higher margins. But the key aspect is that we apply scientifically validated artificial intelligence models. This approach allows you to determine which soil management and the dose of nitrogen fertilization that brings the greatest yield.

Cost Savings and Increased Efficiency

If you are wondering how much you can save from the use of these technologies, follow us in our next reasoning. If you consider that we can make the use of water, fertilizers, sowing doses and agro-pharmaceutical products more efficient by at least 10%. Are you saying there are savings? Furthermore, in the worst cases you save only 10%, in the most virtuous cases each of them increases up to 20%.

If you don't trust us, we understand perfectly, then we leave you below some scientific works that allow you to have a third superpartes opinion.

Precision Farming App - Agriculture Satellite Imagery

We have developed an application that has all the above capabilities, from crop monitoring, problem identification, yield forecasting and generation of prescription maps. Furthermore, in the application you can connect over 15 different sensors, set personalized alerts, carry out complete business economic management, you will have a digital agronomic consultant at your disposal in addition to agronomic data, artificial intelligence models and soil data.

Challenge the status quo with us.

Now let's go and discover the hide part of the iceberg.

Iceberg 2

Digitalization of Supply Chain

Many agri-food supply chains today are so large that they often don't realize how much surface area and where they operate every year. Furthermore, a serious problem with the supply chain is that it is unable to monitor all fields every year. The use of satellite technologies allows you to do all this in a simple way, but above all remotely and 24/24 - 365/365. Nowadays we are helping numerous agro-food supply chains to approach these new technologies, accompanying them towards greater digitalization.

Organic Certification

Nowadays there are several problems in the organic certification workflows. First and foremost, fraud in organic farming is increasing which led to reduce consumer reliability and trust in organic brand food. Many agro pharmaceuticals manufactures are developing chemical fertilizers and pesticide with the unique aim to vanish from the environment as soon as possible making controls difficult to perform. The certification bodies are performing intermittent field visits and in some cases the field that need to be controlled are remote and difficult to access.

By using satellite images and artificial intelligence we can overpass these problems. Using satellite imagery and artificial intelligence, we can overcome these problems. Our AIBIOSAT service, which is based on our PCT and European patent, we can identify whether anomalies are evident in certain fields.

Commodities Trade

Did you know that by using satellite images you can identify the crops that are being grown on farmland? In fact, through the use of multispectral and SAR imagery, crop-specific spectral signatures can be identified, which makes it easy to identify the amount of land covered by a crop. This information made available to commodities traders is able to know in advance whether there will be less or more availability of a certain crop allowing financial movements. We are helping several traders to get real-time statistics related to certain crops, if you are interested, email us.


Every day sees the manifestation of adverse weather phenomena, which affect many farms, which can be compensated by insurance policies. Satellite imagery is a useful tool for determining how much area the claim occurred over, such as flooding, wildlife damage, and hail. In 2023, we generated more over 375 reports that allows insurance companies and farms to be able to determine with absolute certainty the area affected by the claim, generating a super partes data-driven system.

Digital Soil Mapping & Carbon Credits

Nowadays there is a lot of talk about carbon credits and as such they could be sold to companies that impact the environment a lot to do their business. By using various data sources, including satellite imagery, and artificial intelligence, one may be able to do digital soil mapping allowing quantification of soil organic carbon. Through this monitoring, one can easily identify whether some farms have soil organic carbon incorporation and thus generate such credits that may result in new revenue.

The Bright Future of Farming with Satellites

All of these applications of satellite imagery in the agricultural context are applied nowadays, they are not new or experimental things, they are already in operation. Certainly others are developing other applications, so this list is in full evolution and we advise the whole agricultural world to get more and more in touch with these technologies, because they will be more and more a part of it. it is inevitable.
