SA Drought Hub new fact sheet for producers: Using satellite imagery

| Posted in

Satellite technology provides a method of viewing and analysing broadacre crops, giving new insights into variability across and between fields. Despite recent, rapid improvements, growers and agronomists may not be making full use of the practical capabilities of maps and insights generated by satellite imagery.

In low-rainfall environments, there is an opportunity for producers to use satellite imagery to inform their land management practices and make timely decisions with greater confidence, especially in challenging seasons.

The SA Drought Hub supported Upper North Farming Systems in producing Using satellite imagery in the growing season to inform adaptive management. The fact sheet, authored by Jessica Koch from Breezy Hill Precision Ag Services, explores four case studies throughout the Upper North of SA. It highlights how the growers made profitable management decisions by understanding climate variability.
