Data in Use
FieldSense will use high-resolution optical images from Sentinel-2A and -2B satellites.
The data will be combined with crop health models to generate health maps for individual fields.
FieldSense is a smartphone and tablet application that allows farmers to easily monitor the health of their crops. The app will offer farmers weekly updates on crop health status, which can be used to make informed decisions about how to tackle crop health issues. Farmers will use the colored maps to reduce crop loss and improve yields. FieldSense will also reduce the need for journeys to check crop health.
- Save money by reducing their use of fertilizers and pesticides
- Save time by monitoring their fields more efficiently
- Increase profits by reducing losses due to undetected crop health issues
«FieldSense has developed a great mobile tool that will provide farmers with easy-to-use and up-to-date services designed to support better farming operations. It is compelling in its simplicity and in the way it uses modern web technologies to put satellite remote-sensing services in the hands of a large number of end users.»
