Monitoring the Evolution of Crops Using the NDVI

In a previous article, we followed the evolution of crop parcels in the Northern Part of Liege. We gathered the RGB bands (bands 4, 3, 2) of Sentinel-2 imageries taken at different moments. The bands of the same dates were combined to created True Colour scenes and these temporal scenes were assembled to create a…

The NDVI Index in Agriculture

The characteristics of the Earth’s surface are translated into the spectral signature caught by multispectral instrument on satellites. In the case of the Copernicus’s Sentinel-2 satellites, the equipped Multispectral instrument can catch information in each of the 13 bands it is sensible to. Beside bands 2, 3 and 4, which are respectively for the blue,…

Monitoring the crop evolution using different true color satellite imageries

Agriculture is facing many challenges known for centuries. The climate is changing, the weather is capricious, water can become scarce, soils undergo increasing pressures, prices of the fertilizers can climb, culture prices can drop dramatically. Observing their field regularly and taking the right decisions at the right moments are essential for farmers to keep a maximum…

Potentials of the Copernicus Sentinel Programme for the Agro-Industry

Quadratic is currently studying problems encountered in the agro-industrial sector and develops for its partners real-time monitoring tools and decision support tools, intended to help them manage their logistics. Quadratic, conscious of the whole agroindustry, thinks more upstream of this project, at the very source of the food value chain: the crop fields and their efficiency. Productivity of…
