Improve farming yields, reduce fertiliser use using Remote sensing and GIS
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be a powerful tool in agriculture for improving decision-making, resource management, and overall efficiency. Here are several ways in which GIS can be used in agriculture:
Our services include:
GIS can help farmers optimize the use of resources like water, fertilizers, and pesticides by providing detailed spatial information about soil types, crop health, and topography. This allows for precise application of inputs, reducing waste and improving crop yields.
GIS can assist in monitoring and managing crop growth by analyzing satellite or aerial imagery, soil data, and weather information. Farmers can make informed decisions about planting, harvesting, and irrigation schedules.
GIS can create soil maps with information on nutrient content, pH levels, and other soil characteristics. This helps farmers tailor their fertilizer and lime application to match the specific needs of different areas within a field.
Satellite Data Utilisation
By utilizing satellite imagery, farmers and agricultural professionals gain valuable insights into crop health, soil conditions, and overall land management. These images provide vegetation indices, allowing for the early detection of crop stress, disease outbreaks, or nutrient deficiencies
Create Crop advisory based on Soil characteristics, Weather parameters, vegetation indices, crop type, etc. These can be exposed as an APIs as well
AI algorithms can process large datasets to predict crop yields, identify optimal planting times, and assess soil health. This technology facilitates precision agriculture by tailoring interventions, such as irrigation and fertilizer application, to specific areas within a field based on real-time data
By integrating GIS with real-time weather data, farmers can optimize irrigation systems to ensure that crops receive the right amount of water, reducing water usage and costs.
Crop Yield Prediction
By analyzing historical data, weather patterns, and other relevant factors, GIS can assist in predicting crop yields, which is valuable for both planning and marketing.
Market Analysis & Logistics
GIS can help farmers and agribusinesses identify the most efficient routes for transporting crops to markets and distribution centers. It can also assist in assessing market demand based on geographical factors.
