"From satellite to tractor" - Make farming more efficient
with data and analytics.
By 2050, the global agriculture industry must feed 9 billion people across the Globe. Climate change, weather variability, limited arable land and scarce water resources are the challenges to master with innovative technologies. Spacenus' mission is to provide ubiquitous and real time information and advisory services to farmers so that they can grow more with less. We make the agricultural processes more efficient so that it is more productive.
Products and Services / Concept/ Project
To address the agricultural complexity, Spacenus is building a subscription-based, highly scalable decision support system, which will be available for various platforms. The primary user of our system will be farmers via the channel of the chemical companies, metal and steel companies, traders, financial industries, governmental institutions, food processing companies and the other stakeholders of the agricultural industries. We will tailor our services according to different companies' needs.
Our core services will be based on the following core service concepts:
a. Customized alert services: Find and fix thresholds that affect the plant physiology in the field. The alert services are field specific – as individual as possible.
b. Feature extraction services: Extract features like field boundaries or total cropped areas and track phenomenon like field patches and know more about the fields' characteristics.
c. Analytical intersection services: Bring all kind of agricultural data. Intersect those with yield maps and learn.
d. Decision Support system: Keep log of daily activities. Compare decisions and actions with those from yesterday and improve tomorrow’s decisions.
e. Machine data link services: Generate machine-readable ISO-XML file and simplify your agricultural application processes.
