A promising year for Australian agriculture; Agronomists and farmers keep their eyes turned to remote sensing technology
GEOSYS attended the Grains Research update in Adelaide, Wagga Wagga and Bendigo this month, organized by the Grains Research & Development Corporation (GRDC).
GEOSYS has recently announced expansion of its global leadership team to support its growth strategy. Additionally, GEOSYS is pleased to announce the appointment of Gary Holmes as Director of Data Sourcing and Sales.
NAAI – the single nationwide association of insurers in Russia, counting 18 ag insurance companies – initiates new practices and confirms its partnership with GEOSYS™ to support this historical change.
A recent Reuters article titled Digital farming could spell shake-up for crop chemicals sector considers how new technology affects the amount of inputs growers use and highlights a number of digital farming providers who “all aim to provide farmers with individualized prescriptions on how to work each field down to a fraction of an acre.” This begs the question: is farming something that can be prescribed and executed at this level of granularity?
While many in the business of satellite-based remote sensing would like you to believe the answer to that question is “not much,” GEOSYS has the benefit of nearly 30 year of experience in the industry – and confidence in its own abilities – to take a more objective look at the technology.
Big data is a big deal. And understandably so – it is changing virtually every aspect of our lives. And agriculture is no exception. We get this. We do it. Everyday. GEOSYS makes close to 1 petabyte (PB) of satellite imagery data available, live, real-time. That’s the equivalent to 1,000,000 pickup trucks filled with paper that you can search through in milliseconds.
A CropLife article titled Roadblocks To Precision Ag Innovation recently caught our attention. Editor Paul Schrimpf discusses some challenges he faced involving farmers in the PrecisionAg Innovation Series event and relates it to the challenges of pushing more innovations to farmers.
We are proud to announce GEOSYS has entered a long-term agreement with UrtheCast as the agriculture anchor customer for the UrtheDaily Constellation.
