Our mission is to facilitate access to satellite imagery from NASA, the European Space Agency and private satellite operators. Data for each of your fields is processed separately and sent to you as easily digestible information that will help you increase the efficiency of your farm. Thanks to our app you will be able to monitor your crops' development in near real time, observe the effects of weather events and agronomic treatments, and improve decision-making based on historical data. Custom-built variable rate application maps will allow you to sow, fertilise and spray with unprecedented precision, while automated alarms will warn you about sudden changes in crop condition and weather. With our help you will maximize the potential of your land, save on agrochemicals while also protecting the environment.
It is not hard and we will be happy to assist you every step of the way.
Satellite data makes it easier to monitor current crop state on each field and plan agronomic treatments. Gain new insight into the variability of plant growth between and within fields - from sowing to harvest.
We are first and foremost specialists who are truly passionate about the science behind our services. We enjoy demonstrating the practical applications of innovative technologies for efficiency in the agricultural sector and sharing our expertise with others. The environmentally friendly practices that follow from your savings are a welcome byproduct of our efforts. We take our clients' needs to heart because it is they who have enabled us to grow and perfect our services. We are and intend to remain pioneers of satellite data use in the farming business. We're taking precision agriculture to a whole new level.
SatAgro is an interesting system with many practical uses. Thanks to the SatAgro app, we're able to generate substantial savings on fertilizers at our volume of production.

SatAgro’s services are a recent addition to the precision agriculture technologies we use at our farm. Satellite based monitoring of croplands enables us to manage our operation more effectively and, importantly, goes hand in hand with sustainable development in agriculture.
Because of satellite image resolution, the quantity and quality of information provided by SatAgro depends on the size and shape of the field. Most of the maps we deliver has a resolution of 10 m, so there are 100 measurements per hectare. If the monitored field is narrow then more measurements fall on the edge and they represent a mixture of area inside and outside of the field. In the case of graphs presenting crop condition, the minimal field size is 10 hectares.
Satellite observations do not prevent our users from considering other crop monitoring methods, the results of which we are happy to integrate into our users' accounts. Nevertheless, satellites do have a number of important advantages. A benefit of satellite data is the low cost of monitoring coupled with the extremely high quality of the technology involved. In contrast to drones, satellite images cover the entire farm, even if the fields are widely distributed. Satellites scan the entire field area, whereas tractor-based ground sensors often scan only along the path. When considering using satellite monitoring please however keep in mind that the spatial resolution of satellite data (pixel > 5 m) excludes some applications such as weed surveying or detailed crop loss assessments, as well as the fact that images will be delivered depending on the calendar and weather, not on demand.
Availability of satellite data depends on satellite type as well as weather (cloudiness). Some satellites have a daily revisit time (we use such imagery to infer general crop condition on a graph). However, a detailed representation of any given field on a map is possible on average once a week and requires a cloudless sky. In practice during the growth season we deliver just under twenty maps (depending on the weather). Expected satellite flyover dates are marked on a calendar within the SatAgro application. The Professional plan offers our clients with at least 250 ha the ability to order one commercial satellite image (resolution of about 5 m) each growing season. This extra service is especially useful when sowing and spraying dates are fixed and defined well in advance. Data provided as part of our standard plan should be sufficient for most users.
Yes. We are in direct contact with our clients. In addition to providing innovative data products we also assist users with their interpretation and use. We also maintain a blog where we publish useful articles and instructions.
