Planet's constellation of satellites orbit the poles every 90 minutes, capturing the entire Earth's landmass every day. This unprecedented dataset provides geospatial insights at the speed of change, equipping organizations with the data necessary to make informed, timely decisions. In this discussion, we will go over the fundamental ways space observation is serving agricultural customers and some essential precision ag use cases where Satellite imagery plays an important role. We will also cover new applications in satellite data - everything from Improving Yield Estimation to Identifying Planting and Harvest Dates and Understanding Crop Nitrogen Status.
