Case Study: Soft Commodities

A client needed to understand the expected crops across millions of hectares – but there was no reliable data available. HSAT worked the client to create a bespoke solution to monitor the region for the total area of crops planted, and the growth of the crops throughout the year.

This was achieved by using tens of thousands of gigabytes of satellites data, hundreds of drones surveys, over a decade of weather data and linking this to historical production for the country. This then enabled detailed probability maps field by field, province by province, region by region to be produced.

The maps showed the crop growth, the risks and the expected harvest.
