Satellite monitoring of crops

Onesoil

With Onesoil you can monitor the development of your crops – for free. The system provides satellite images, which get updated several times a month. The development level of crops is measured by the NDVI vegetation index, which shows the green biomass. You will easily recognize the good, average and poorly developed zones of your crops. You can find these zones in your fields with the user-friendly Onesoil mobile app for Android and iOS.

In each zone you can measure the chlorophyll content and get recommendations how much nitrogen to apply from the Meteobot® Nitro precision fertilizing system. Both fixed-rate and variable rate application is possible. Find out more about Meteobot® Nitrо …

At.farm

At.farm has been created by the leading global fertilizers manufacturer – the Norwegian company Yara. At.farm uses satellite images, which get updated several times a month. What is unique about it is that plants development is measured by vegetation indices, that have been specially developed by Yara’s research and development center. You can see the difference yourself – the following picture shows crop development, measured by the standard NDVI vegetation index:

On the next picture the same field is displayed, this time using Yara’s biomass index:

This precision enables you to divide your fields in much more detailed zones, which makes At.farm especially suited for variable application during the later phases of plants development.

After you have identified the various zones, you can measure the chlorophyll content in each of them and get recommendations how much nitrogen to apply from the Meteobot® Nitro precision fertilizing system. With At.farm you can create a very precise variable application map – you can even specify the exact rate for each point in the field.
After that you can export the variable application prescription map and load it into the guidance system of your tractor.
