Rezatec Provides AHDB with Innovative Geospatial Data Analytics to Map True Extent of Potato Crops Across the UK

Harwell, Oxfordshire – Rezatec, the main supplier of geospatial information analytics to the Infrastructure, Forestry and Agribusiness sectors, has been operating with The Agriculture and Horticulture Construction Board (AHDB), to display the effectiveness of the usage of satellite tv for pc information to map the level of potato vegetation in pilot places throughout England and Scotland.

AHDB is the United Kingdom’s statutory levy board funded through farmers, growers and others within the provide chain. Its objective is to encourage farmers, growers and business to reach a all of a sudden converting international. The overview of leading edge applied sciences that may allow its imaginative and prescient is a very powerful focal point for AHDB and this venture goals to judge the usage of satellite tv for pc information.

Potato crop mapping

Having a look at 4 websites unfold throughout the United Kingdom, Rezatec carried out its confirmed crop identity tactics to map places of potato vegetation, all the way down to person fields, a few of which only some hundred sq. meters in dimension. A crop well being map was once then generated to focus on the level and abundance of every potato area. This allows AHDB to raised perceive manufacturing spaces of potatoes in the United Kingdom from season to season at a micro point.

Rezatec applies its geospatial information tactics to extract particular spectral indices around the enlargement cycle to create a signature that identifies the crop, the usage of each optical and radar satellite tv for pc information assets. By means of making use of its in-house gadget studying algorithms to those indices, Rezatec can distinguish potato from different crop varieties with as much as 95% accuracy.

Moreover, thru lively faraway sensing tracking, Rezatec too can assess variables of crop efficiency, e.g. well being, in opposition to the crop fashion throughout the rising season, and, the usage of its information science tactics supply growers with crucial knowledge to take corrective motion and in the end building up crop yields.

Dr Jim Dimmock, Useful resource Control Scientist at AHDB summarised: “It’s glaring from our collaboration with Rezatec that the applying of satellite tv for pc information for mapping crop extent is of serious price and in comparison to extra conventional strategies, we had been inspired through the facility to scale throughout massive spaces with prime ranges of accuracy.”

Dr Andrew Carrel, Leader Era Officer at Rezatec commented: “Rezatec’s agriculture control services and products are very flexible, starting from figuring out vegetation at a area, or even sub-field point, and tracking crop efficiency, as much as macro-level analytics to enhance commodity crop buying and selling for a couple of end-users together with Executive and investors.”

Rezatec supplies its agricultural control services and products world wide to quite a lot of agricultural end-users from sugar cane and wheat farmers in Mexico to dairy farmers in the United Kingdom.
