EOS launches remote sensing crop monitoring platform

EOS Earth Observing System has launched its digital agri platform for the North American market.

The platform is called EOS Crop Monitoring. It combines AI, satellite vegetation images and weather data to deliver comprehensive information on any farmlands.

Cost advantage can vary between 5-20%

Depending on territorial layout of the landbank, the cost advantage of this technology together with the entire suite of precision agriculture can vary between 5-20%, according to EOS.

NDVI

The platform aggregates satellite images captured by the main satellite missions of today, processes large amounts of information through AI-driven algorithms and presents the results via a user interface.

EOS says it utilises normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) and many more including ReCl, NDRE, CCCl, and MSAVI.

Historical weather reports

EOS Crop Monitoring defines field borders, additionally providing historical weather reports for the past 10 years, allowing to compare median yearly temperatures and precipitation as well as to measure the accumulated temperature.

5-day forecast

The platform also features a 5-day forecast, sending out alerts to let the users know about any upcoming disturbances such as intense drops or spikes of temperature.
