The Satellite Applications Catapult – funded by Innovate UK and collaborating with the Agri-EPI Centre Ltd. and Cranfield University – has undertaken a pilot research project within the early months of the 2017 grass growing season which aimed to exploit satellite Earth observation (EOS), weather and field data to support the precision management of grassland agriculture. The results of the project are expected to support the development of future validated spatial (and dynamic) grazing management services delivered by industry for livestock keepers, and particularly dairy farmers.

The project partners have arranged a workshop to bring together industry and research entities from the satellite and diary sectors to highlight the project work undertaken to date and to discuss identified future research and commercial opportunities.
