Use cases

Precision Agriculture

Enhance farming efficiency and increase sustainability through targeted management of agricultural land.

Intro

Use real-time, reliable information for crop insights

Agriculture is comprised of complex interdependent processes. In order to maximize yield and sustainability, resources should be organized efficiently. In contrast to conventional agricultural methods, the use of digital data can increase resource and cost efficiency drastically. Farmers that use real-time, reliable information on crop health have a competitive advantage.

Optical imagery can provide invaluable insights into crop growth and development. In other cases with high cloud cover, radar monitoring can be used. Accessing this technology with UP42 enables targeted application of fertilizers, pesticides, and irrigation—advancing agriculture both economically and ecologically.
