Case Study: Crop Disease and Irrigation

A client needed to monitor crops for risk of disease and drought/poor irrigation. The scale of the fields and the land overall meant it was not possible to manually check all of the fields every day and drones would have been cost-prohibitive. For this reason, HSAT built a solution that looked every 10mx10m of every field, constantly monitoring the health of the crops.

HSAT uses a wide variety of satellite data, in this case, the satellites being used had a 10x10m resolution – meaning that the crops could be analysed at a very high level of accuracy. Satellite data was obtained at a very high frequency, roughly, every 7 days, to provide constant monitoring of the crops health.
