Our ORGAN-IM project has reached the half-time milestone. The aim of the preparatory activity granted by ESA is to develop a monitoring system that facilitates the control of organic farming with the help of remote sensing.
In the first phase we have built a technology that is based on the comparison of the data extracted from satellite imagery with markers quantifying the deterministic characteristics of the observed vegetation and soil and being specialised to the individual features of organic farming. Monitoring of large areas can be automated through mass data analysis. In November we are going to present the results to date for the ESA experts online. Verification of the developed method is going to be processed in the second phase until the project’s closure in 2021 spring.
