Smart Irrigation helps save up to 70% on water, 40% on fertilizer, and increase crop yield. But you need sensors to optimize it for crop and soil types, and take into account weather conditions.
We know, sensors are expensive and often get lost, stolen or broken.
Luckily, soil moisture can be measured from Space.
<aside> 🛰️ At EOmatic, we use satellite data to provide irrigation forecasts. Our model takes for input soil, crop and irrigation types, and Sentinel-2 data to produce soil moisture maps. ****
Other companies use NDVI data and don't consider other input. This leads to disappointing results because of the poor resolution and effects like over-saturation.
Our maps have ****a 10-meter spatial resolution, and optimized for soil and crop types.
