In the past we have briefly touched on the use of remotely sensed ETc to optimize irrigation. In this webinar we have invited Sumer Johal, CEO and Founder of Agralogics, to share a more in-depth look at the numerous applications of satellite based information.
We will go beyond just the images and talk about the importance of using analytics in specific on-farm applications, including pest pressure, irrigation system performance, nutrient deficiencies and soil disparities.
You will see actual images, analytics and learn how to look for potential problems in the field long before the human eye can detect them.
