Modern satellite observations offer unprecedented possibilities for local (regional) and global agriculture monitoring.They allow imaging the Earth’s surface with a spatial resolution of 10-20 meters and a repetition time of 1-2 days*.Today, such satellite monitoring is primarily carried out by Sentinel-2, but the information it collects is a continuation of previous satellite systems used for agriculture, such as Landsat.The products of these programs, in the form of photos and images, are already available under the sat4envi project, led by the IMGW-PIB. Data from the Sentinel-2 satellite enable the determination of soil properties and conditions for crops and the mapping of the current state of agricultural cultivation activities. All this information helps researchers and farmers to assess the usefulness of land, predict the quantity and quality of crops in a given period, monitor seasonal changes, and implement national or regional aid systems to implement sustainable development policies.
