Satellite and Weather together Create a Superior Crop Forecasting System
The One Minute Summary
- Many providers of crop intelligence focus on analyzing only satellite information or only weather inforamation to estimate crop health and related information. CropProphet uniquely combines both weather and satellite information to enable a daily updating crop yield and production forecast.
- Users of the system can have access to the US crop production and yield intelligence and forecasts provided by CropProphet, a product of Prescient Weather. Users can also have access to digital forms of the data that drive CropProphet as well as the content created by the system.
Satellite and Weather Together
You can rely on the CropProphet Crop Yield and Production forecasting system because the best possible data is combined on a daily basis to predict the end of season USDA Crop Production and Yield forecasts for Corn, Soybeans, and Winter Wheat.
CropProphet provides you with maps, such as the one below, that forecast Corn Yield at the county level.
CropProphet is unique because, while many services are analyzing satellite information to understand the health of the crop, we are also analyzing daily updated high-resolution weather information.
A key source of satellite information is the NDVI satellite information, as shown below.
Another important source of information is, of course, weather. An example map from the CropProphet system is shown below.
The CropProphet system uses inputs from many source of information to forecast expected corn, soybean, and winter wheat yields.
CropProphet is unique because it combines both satellite and weather inputs to create a superior US Crop Production Forecast System.
