GNSS SBAS and Earth Observation Satellites Help Improve Farm Soil Drainage and Variable Rate Fertilization

Using in situ sensors, GNSS corrections and satellite remote sensing, it is possible to obtain information on soil anomalies, enabling farmers to take corrective actions in the field. This information is given through a pre-set field map which identifies areas needing a specific treatment, leading farmers to an improved cost-benefit ration for their agricultural crops.
