Recommended use 

During the agricultural season, crops face a number of dangers that can lead to drops in yield and lost revenue. Monitoring fields and staying alert are key to reducing these dangers. The most common monitoring approach used by farms is for employees to visit every field and manually evaluate crop health. To simplify this costly and time-consuming process FieldSense was developed.

Farmers, consultants and agronomist can greatly enhance the effectiveness of their decision making without the need to handle and process satellite imagery and can reduce the number of ground surveys.

If you are interested in a detailed and recent information about the health and growth of the vegetation, FieldSense will be of great help:

  • Get an overview of your fields and prioritize successfully the manual monitoring in order to avoid misjudgments to the overall crop health
  • Detect potential problems early during seasons of growth and reduce treatment costs or use of fertilizers and pesticides. This results in a more optimized and sustainable agricultural production
  • Fast and frequent crop monitoring by receiving weekly updates of satellite images
  • Review and compare field data from previous seasons which are stored permanently and evaluate prior actions
  • Precision farming becomes simpler high resolution earth observation imagery. Much higher resolutions are expected in 2018
  • On-site monitoring of your crops by using the smartphone and tablet application or from your office through the FieldSense web application

Product description 

The monitoring service FieldSense Service utilizes state-of-the-art satellite technology to measure the Chlorophyll content of crops. Based on this measurement, the photosynthetic activity of those crops is determined and illustrated graphically as biomass maps. The information is overlaid on true-color satellite imagery.

The application currently provides:

  • True-color satellite imagery
  • Biomass maps that indicate the vitality of the crops
  • Variation maps that highlight heterogeneities within a field

FieldSense is easy to use wherever you are. No data or web service integration into your farm management system is needed. Simply use the application when you are in your fields using the smartphone and tablet applications, or immerse yourself in more detailed vegetation maps at home through the FieldSense web application.

The application currently provides satellite imagery with a spatial resolution of up to 10x10 meters, and a temporal resolution of 7-10 days. In 2018, it is expected that the application will be able to deliver satellite imagery of a much higher spatial and temporal resolution.

Easy satellite-based fields
