Use case

Efficient crop water management by remote sensing

Target groups

  • Intensive agriculture
  • Water manager
  • Public authorities


Efficient water management is considered a major factor in increasing crop production by up to 70%. Water management currently requires the use of expensive infrastructure and is based on time-consuming point measurements.

Farm/IT uses multi-spectral and multi-temporal satellite data to calculate the extent of cropping area and crop water requirement on a daily basis. This information combined with soil water balance modelling is used to optimise irrigation amount and timing.



What is the optimal relationship between irrigation water supply and crop yield?



What is the optimal irrigation strategy for a particular crop species?



What is the optimal point in time for irrigation?
