Farmers to benefit from ESA-BASF collaboration
10 February 2017
With farming an exacting science, ESA and the world's leading chemical company, BASF, have joined forces to see how data from satellites can best serve the agricultural community.
Through a collaboration agreement and in close partnership with farmers, the aim is to translate satellite imagery and data into digital tools and services.
Satellites, in particular the fleet of Copernicus Sentinels, offer a valuable source of information for digitally-based crop management.
This new agreement will make it easier for farmers to plan everyday tasks more efficiently.
