EOS Data Analytics (EOSDA), a global provider of AI-powered satellite imagery analytics, has recently entered into a partnership with the Georgian Farmers’ Association (GFA). The companies pursue the goal of introducing Georgian farmers to satellite-driven precision agriculture tools to enhance farms’ operations and product quality.
The contribution of agriculture to Georgia’s economy amounts to $1.9 billion annually, states the National Statistics Office of Georgia. As of 2020, the industry embraced more than 0.8 million hectares, housing around 640,000 agricultural holdings.
Georgian Farmers’ Association cooperates with governmental, donor, and educational organizations, building coordination between farmers and other businesses and individuals interested in agriculture. The Association arranges workshops, seminars, and training to improve farmers’ knowledge and skills and connects landowners with agricultural produce buyers and input suppliers.
Moreover, GFA offers services designed to boost the Georgian agricultural sector — smallholding farmers and large enterprises can get qualified agri-consulting in farms’ financial and operation management and agronomy.
The primary GFA goals are delivering innovations to farmers and ensuring sustainable business development. Thus, partnership with EOSDA will help strengthen the organization’s innovation component and further develop value-added services bringing more economic sustainability to the Association.
Our organization focuses on educating farmers, giving them access to the best agricultural practices and state-of-the-art technologies. EOSDA Crop Monitoring software is a perfect tool for that purpose — the satellite-driven analytics enables farmers and other agriculture-engaged industries to achieve higher results in growing crops and producing quality products. Through the partnership with EOSDA, we expect to fill the gap in data-driven farm management solutions in the Georgian agricultural market and unlock the opportunities offered by cost-effective and sustainable technologies.

Under the partnership agreement, GFA will have a professional subscription package and additional clientele management features (Partners Tab/Partnership Module) activated in the EOSDA Crop Monitoring platform.
The Association will use the platform’s capabilities to provide agricultural consultancy within the company’s support services and develop farmers’ tech knowledge enabling them to make informed decisions based on satellite analytics.
Partnering with GFA gives us a unique opportunity to work with a wider agricultural value chain in Georgia. It’s exciting to know about the work GFA is doing to boost the farming community. We both share a deep commitment to bringing sustainability across farming operations.
