Dimitra Releases 5 New Satellite Reports
Using satellites for performance analysis to improve productivity and sustainability
BELIZE CITY, BELIZE — Dimitra Incorporated, a global Agtech company on a mission to make its technology available to farmers globally, has developed and released its second set of five satellite reports included within the basic Connected Farmer platform. These reports play a significant role in providing farmers with actionable data to increase yield, reduce expenses and mitigate risk.
Dimitra’s mission is to ensure every farmer, regardless of economic status, has access to simple, beautiful, and actionable technology. In August 2022, Dimitra announced that they had released five satellite reports to improve farming performance.
Today, Dimitra has developed a total of fifteen additional satellite reports to help farmers make informed decisions to improve their productivity and farm more sustainably. These reports can be available to farmers in addition to the core set of five satellite reports to get them started using satellites for performance analysis. Keep reading to learn more about the functions of the second set of reports.
Dimitra Satellite Reports 6 to 10
Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) is used to remotely assess vegetation conditions in areas with a high density of trees, such as rainforests. One common application of EVI is it is used to identify stress related to drought over different landscapes.
Green Chlorophyll Vegetation Index (GCI) monitors the impact of seasonality, environmental stress, or pesticides on vegetation health. It’s used to estimate the amount of chlorophyll present in various crop species, which in turn contributes to biomass production that is measured by the crop health index (NDVI). The chlorophyll content mainly reflects the physiological state of vegetation. GCI values are low in stressed vegetation. Therefore it can be used as a direct indicator for measuring vegetation health.
Green Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (GNDVI) measures the photosynthetic activity in the vegetation cover. It is often used to measure plant leaf nitrogen concentration and moisture content. GNDVI is very useful in detecting wilted or aged crops, which in turn helps farmers identify ready-to-harvest crops.
Structure Intensive Pigment Vegetation Index (SIPI) helps identify early signs of crop disease or other causes of plant stress. It measures the ratio of carotenoids to chlorophyll content. It is beneficial in crops with a variable canopy structure. The increased values of the SIPI signal are an indication of vegetation stress.
Normalized Burned Ratio (NBR) highlights burned agricultural lands. It is handy in detecting active wildfires in agriculture and forestry to analyze the severity of burned areas and monitor the vegetation survival after the burn. NBR is also valuable for detecting stubble burning in agricultural fields after harvesting crops, often leading to air pollution.
