Monitoring Grassland by SatelliteIn 2019 we were involved in a pilot project to investigate the use satellite remote sensing to inform grassland management and predict grass yield in Wales. We have now proved the efficacy of satellite data for monitoring within a single field and across entire continents!
One Million Fields SurveyedAccording to our Data Services Team we have surveyed over one million fields in the last year. When we take into account the number of repeat visits to some of these fields, the land area we have covered is well over 600 million km².
Three crops we're mapping from space! With the world’s population projected to grow to approximately 10.9 billion by 2100 and with the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the world's food system is under increasing pressure. We need to plan to feed more people without overwhelming the planet. Satellite imagery can help safeguard global food supply and support sustainability.
