Cloud cover distorts satellite imagery, leading to gaps in data that hinder results. ‘ClearSky’, a technique being developed by scientists at the University of Hertfordshire uses radar data to fill the gaps caused by cloud cover. Agrimetrics plans to pre-link ClearSky to more than a billion agricultural data points.
Agrimetrics has recently launched a new Data Marketplace, which promises to reward data-owners whilst accelerating innovation. Dr Matthew Smith, Agrimetrics Chief Product Officer, answers our questions about what it can offer farmers and others. “As both data providers and consumers are our customers, we’re interested in any data through which value could be created through its exchange.”
To implement AI in the field needs more than connectivity; it also requires a common framework for relating one type of data, eg crop data, with another such as soil data. Matthew Smith explained how work by Agrimetrics on digitising field boundaries is helping to provide this framework and this will be helpful for ensuring data is meaningful.
There has been much dispute over field boundaries as they move over time. To address this and provide a consistent framework for further data analysis, Agrimetrics has used artificial intelligence to identify the UK’s field boundaries from satellite imagery supplied by Airbus.
To help growers time the application of its key oilseed rape herbicides and minimise risk to water sources, BASF has developed a new smart tool wHen2gO.
