POWORGANIC

Space-based services for local agriculture monitoring

The Poworganic project aims at developing a micro-credit model which uses satellite imagery to give farmers instructions on how to apply fertiliser. It also aims at tackling three main challenges: decrease the level of indoor air pollution due to domestic energy production; decrease the level of environmental pollution due to toilet waste; and increase crops yield and production without increasing the areas of cultivable land. The service targets small-scale farmers. It uses Earth Observation satellite imagery to improve local agricultural and environmental conditions and to help farmers better understand the health of their crops.
