An increase in the number of satellites whizzing around in space means growers have access to more frequent and better-quality crop imagery than ever before. For the farmer, that means greater accuracy of variable-rate nitrogen inputs – a practice that independent research has shown can bump up yields in winter cereals by 3-8%. On top of yield benefits, reduced variation in harvest conditions and grain quality, less lodging and disease pressure and reduced environmental impact through smarter use of inputs […]
