"Welcome to the agriculture hub! Satellites power agriculture providing users across the supply chain with the data, connectivity and locational information to support the sector in achieving an optimised and sustainable food production system. We are working from farm to fork across supply chains around the world with governments, industry and research to ensure UK satellite technologies and enabled systems deliver sustainable actionable intelligence and direct intervention on every hectare of land capable of production globally."

Mark Jarman, Head of Agriculture
