10m ET, Anywhere, Anytime



August 2, 2021

As farming is rapidly changing, transitioning towards increasing water use efficiency in crop production through technology-based resilient and sustainable approaches to agricultural systems, such as AgSAT, becomes indispensable.

Featured in the distinguished IrrigationTODAY magazine, AgSAT is the first mobile application in the world that optimizes food production by calculating and forecasting crop water requirements in near real-time by using remote sensing technology. 

Developed under the IHE-Delft funded project ‘ITSET: Integrating time-series ET mapping into an operational irrigation management framework, AgSAT is a web and a smartphone application available to users globally.

IrrigationTODAY is an irrigation resource which features content about the latest agriculture irrigation technologies, trends, and best practices. It is the Irrigation Association’s (IA) quarterly publication with a focus on agriculture irrigation. The magazine has a printed distribution to over 12,000 growers, IA member manufacturers and distributors, qualified nonmembers, and industry stakeholders.

AgSAT is a smart irrigation mobile and web application that calculates crop water requirements in near-real time based on satellite imagery and weather data. It can be used by farmers anywhere in the world at the field scale.

AgSAT brings irrigation technology to the farmer’s phone on both Android and iOS. Spanning five continents, AgSAT is being used in more than 50 countries around the world. AgSAT users get their crop water requirements and apply irrigation where it is most needed in the context of climate change, water scarcity, and global socio-economic challenges, which prevail distinctly in arid and semi-arid regions.
