Monitor your Crops with Daily Satellite Imagery

Combining daily satellite imagery, unique map layers, automatic health change detection, and field-centric weather, Farmers Edge provides timely, field-level insights for your specialty crops. From orchards to vegetables and everything in between, Farmers Edge technology goes beyond the industry standard to help you detect and respond to issues before yield is impacted.

Features

Imagery Derived Map Layers

Automatic Crop Health Change Detection

Advanced Scouting Technology

Case Study

Imagery Derived Map Layers

\

Depict a consistent view of fields to help track crop growth and vegetation productivity

\

Unique map layers draw out finer variability in the field to pinpoint areas for scouting

\

Identifies issues that may impact yield such as irrigation irregularities, spray applications and equipment malfunctions

\

Powered by rapid data processing and imagery captured daily by the largest private constellation of satellites available for fast problem detection

Automatic Crop Health Change Detection 

\

Imagery from within 14 days is compared and scanned to identify any changes in the field

\

Health Change Maps and Notifications are automatically generated when a change takes place within the field

\

Area of change is outlined on the field to enhance scouting efficiency

\

Helps identify potential yield threats such as pests, diseases, nutrient deficiencies, lodging, damage from weather events and more

Advanced Scouting Technology

\

Automatic syncing keeps all records in one place

\

Locate problem spots accurately with GPS navigation

\

Access built-in pest lists, take pictures and schedule tasks right from the field

Inversion Monitoring

We’ve installed inversion towers at specific weather stations to build our Regional Inversion Monitoring Network.

\

Combined with Delta-T info from FarmCommand

\

Network allows you to evaluate the risk of inversions to support your spraying decisions

Below you can see the various map layers derived from daily satellite imagery. By using a combination these map layers and automatic crop health change detection, the grower was able to react to the dry areas in time to protect yield. As you can see, an NDVI image alone does not show detailed levels of variation in vegetation and soil; had the grower used this map on its own, the dry areas may have gone undetected.

NDVI Map

NDVI Maps depict the natural progression of crop health. Here, the map is showing the difference in varieties of almond trees planted by row. The orange areas indicate defoliation from arid conditions.

Scouting Map

Featuring a high-contrast layer, Scouting Maps highlight differences in canopy health, soil and vegetation. On this Scouting Map, red areas in the southwest corner display dry soil where there was poor irrigation. The other areas of red show individual trees with disease pressure.

Variation Map

Variation Maps identify early or late-season abnormalities. The dark purple areas on the Variation Map here confirm the location of individual tree disease locations, as well as the dry soil in the southwest corner where the soil wasn’t irrigated sufficiently.

Health Change Map

Crop Health Change Maps automatically detect changes in the field and trigger email notifications. In only 4 days, this irrigation concern escalated to water stress, but with the notification, the grower was able to identify 7.77 acres of damage and treat the area to protect yield and prevent further damage.
