Fieldmargin lowers the cost of satellite-sourced field images

Hertfordshire-based mapping firm Fieldmargin has developed a lower-cost satellite imagery service that will allow more farmers to use it to help make agronomic decisions.

The new Field Health feature is available as part of its Pro plan and gives regularly updated pictures and NDVI analysis of fields using imagery from Sentinel-2 satellites. Growers also have access to three years of field history.

Having an overview of crop variations in a field can make it easier to spot underperforming areas before they become evident on the ground. This makes better use of an agronomist when it comes to targeting specific areas before problems spread and become unmanageable.

Subscriptions start from £5/month for 100ha on a rolling basis, with no lock-in period and a free two-week trial before committing.
