Digital Service For Farmers

Digital Service For Farmers

Author: ChemistryViews.org

BASF and the European Space Agency (ESA) signed a collaboration agreement. In close partnership with farmers, they want to evaluate how satellite-derived data and images can best be used for agricultural purposes. The long-term goal is to translate this information into digital tools and services.

Satellites deliver information in real-time for a variety of agriculture decisions, such as optimal planting and harvesting times, optimal fertiliser use and water demand for irrigation systems. Farmers will benefit by being able to plan everyday tasks more efficiently.

In this collaboration, BASF provides experts as well as information from the company’s areas of specialization, such as agricultural know-how, field data, and feedback from farmers. ESA provides satellite images and data.
