CropSAT is a cutting-edge agricultural tool that leverages satellite data to proactively detect and combat pests and diseases in crops. By utilizing remote sensing technology, it can pinpoint early signs of crop health deterioration, enabling farmers to take precise measures to curb the issues before they spread. This approach not only saves costs by reducing the need for broad treatments but also promotes sustainability by minimizing chemical use and supports real-time monitoring for timely interventions, ultimately enhancing agricultural productivity.
CropSAT will use data from Sentiel-2 and Sentiel-3 such as chlorophyll index, moisture level, temperature, vegetation density, plant water content and other variables to monitor the health of crops; preventing yield loss and uncontrolled spread of disease.
