Brief description

The client, happy with the results obtained with Mapsens® Agro since 2019, has decided to extend the monitoring to two additional farms of 1,500 ha. The total area currently monitored is 3,500 ha.

Analysis every 15 days, based on multispectral images from ESA’s Sentinel-2 satellites, of crop status and evolution using different vigor, moisture, stress and chlorophyll indices. These indices are used to generate evolution maps and alerts that provide a quick and general overview of the specific state of the crop and its progress throughout the season, which facilitates quick and effective management decisions.

All this information is uploaded to Mapsens® Agro to be consulted and analyzed in combination with other data sources, such as climatic data, sensor data and field sampling of parameters.
