Project Description

DEIMOS-1 Image of the week (acquired 27/10/2015): Agribusiness region

This false color imagery features agricultural structures in the western Bahia region, Brazil. The varying shades of red and other colours across the entire image indicate how sensitive the satellite’s multispectral camera is to differences in vegetation cover and chlorophyll content. This is used to provide key information on plant health. Circles come from a central-pivot irrigation system, where the long water pipe rotates around a well at the centre. The capital of this agribusiness region is the city of Luís Eduardo Magalhães, being agriculture its main business. DEIMOS-1 data are very useful for Precision Agriculture (PA) applications including yield prediction, irrigation, planting and pricing.
