CropSAT – A decision support system for practical use of satellite images in precision agricultureAlshihabi, Omran; Piikki, Kristin; Söderström, Mats;
CropSAT is an interactive decision support system (DSS) that provides vegetation index (VI) maps from Sentinel-2 data all across the globe and lets users delineate fields, design variable-rate application of user specified inputs (mainly nitrogen, but also e.g. fungicides or growth regulators) based on the VI maps. The CropSAT DSS was initially developed in a research project at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), and has since its launch in 2015 been continuously developed in a private-public-partnership between SLU, private companies and the Swedish Board of Agriculture. Now it has global coverage, is continuously updated with new satellite images, and is provided free-of-charge in multiple languages (including Arabic and French). The present study aims at describing the CropSAT systems, summarizing research results from the ongoing developmental process and pointing to opportunities for applications in precision agriculture, e.g. in Morocco and other countries in North Africa.
