Agrowth empowers users with intelligent tools which generate knowledge at the parcel level. Specifically, the Agrowth platform combines Earth Observation data from Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 missions, along with pertinent vegetation indices, soil and weather data. It makes use of state of the art in Artificial Intelligence in order to support smart farming using EO data. It provides a crop monitoring service which offers information and actionable advice at the parcel level. In the current version, the available services per parcel are Phenology estimation, Weather Forecast (through ResAgri affiliate service), Yield prediction and Vegetation Indices. Furthermore, there are some services for a quick overall view of the state of all available parcels on the map such as Overlay Sentinel-2 Images, Phenology Stage and Crop Classification.
The agrowth platform, which is a suite of smart farming services enabled by artificial intelligence, earth observations and numerical weather predictions. Crop phenology and crop yield estimation, the two core services of agrowth, constitute key information for agricultural management and thereby actionable knowledge for the farmer, the agricultural consultant, the insurance company and the policy maker. Using agrowth we can i) reduce the cultivation costs, ii) increase productivity and iii) protect the yield from adverse weather events. All this work is of great significance towards achieving zero hunger, as we help to make more with less
“Several farmers went on with sowing their parcels even though the sowing maps indicated otherwise. The conditions of the short future were unfavorable and the farmers had to sow for a second time a couple of weeks later.”
