Prevent Potential Crop Damage and Preserve Revenue with Satellite Data

For certain high value crops like hops, an agronomist might spend hours and hours in a field every week, becoming intimately familiar with its variations and patterns. Satellite imagery is no replacement for that kind of deep knowledge, but if something shows up in data from above that doesn’t look right to an agronomist, it’s almost always worth a look to figure out what’s wrong.

In this use case, we’ve analyzed a hop field that suffered a spider mite infestation that ended up severely impacting yields. Download the use case to see how PlanetScope monitoring shows the progression of the infestation, and learn how the imagery could have triggered an action to prevent yield loss.
