The increasing use of digital technologies in agriculture is helping to address a host of challenges, improving farm profitability and resource efficiency whilst contributing to sustainability goals. By combining different satellite technologies (EO and GNSS), the businesses can create new value-adding applications in the field of smart farming. Following the fifth revolution in agriculture, EO data, combined with Galileo’s centimetre accuracy and boosted by EGNOS, can enable accurate and efficient variable rate applications. Leveraging the synergies created by the tandem use of EO and GNSS, a new frontier for agriculture will soon be a reality. Smart data will enable “a less is more” approach: with less fuel, water and chemicals, agriculture will evolve into a more efficient, profitable and sustainable sector.
