From Seed to Growth: Monitoring Crop Conditions with Satellite Remote Sensing Technology

From seeding to growth to maturity, it is not always smooth sailing. There are many uncertainties in this process, such as weather, temperature, pests, and disasters, all of which can cause various losses to crops. In traditional agriculture, farming relies on the weather, but nowadays, the limitations of traditional agriculture have changed.

Rapid development has enabled modern agriculture to use satellite remote sensing technology to grasp the conditions of resumption of work and production in various places without leaving home, monitor crop growth in the fields, and provide monitoring and early warning for natural disasters.

Application of satellite remote sensing in agriculture

Before sowing, farmers can plan the crops they want to plant based on the situation of their own fields. By monitoring the soil moisture conditions, they can choose the most suitable crops to plant. With the use of agricultural satellite remote sensing technology, farmers can monitor the crop seedling status and understand the growth of the crops. They can take measures to supplement seedlings in areas with poor seedling conditions. During the growth process, crop growth can be dynamically monitored in real time, and farmers can understand the growth of their crops, allowing them to have full control over their crops.

Crop growth monitoring refers to the dynamic observation of the seedling situation, growth status, and its changes, which are closely related to adjusting the cultivation measures. The rapid and non-destructive monitoring of crop growth can not only reflect the changes in crop yield, but also predict food shortages or surpluses as early as possible, which is of great significance for the macro-management of food.

Crop growth is the result of the comprehensive effect of many factors, such as light, temperature, soil, water, fertilizer, pests and diseases, disaster weather, and management measures.

In the early stage of crop growth, it mainly reflects the quality of seedlings, while in the later stage of crop growth and development, it mainly reflects the development of the plant and its specified characteristics in terms of yield.

Although the growth of crops is affected by multiple factors, and the growth process is an extremely complex physiological and ecological process, their growth status can be reflected by some characteristics that reflect their growth.

Advantages of using satellite remote sensing in agriculture

The satellite remote sensing big data platform is a platform that realizes the automatic monitoring, guidance, and analysis of the entire growth process of crops throughout the whole growth season, solving the monitoring of the entire growth process of agricultural planting throughout the whole growth season, and realizing the automatic monitoring and analysis process.

Through the monitoring of the entire growth process of crops throughout the whole growth season by satellite remote sensing technology, crop production can be guaranteed, stable production can be achieved, food security can be further guaranteed, and the bottom line of food security can be safeguarded.

By using electronic devices to remotely view the status of crops in the fields, the automation and intelligence of field management can be realized, the labor cost of field management can be reduced, and cost savings and efficiency can be achieved.
