Free Webinar: Agritech Solutions For UK Businesses
On September 20, 2022, at 4 PM BST, EOS Data Analytics, a global provider of AI-powered satellite imagery analytics, will host a free webinar about precision agriculture and the role of satellite monitoring in providing insights into fields and farm operations necessary for sustainable crop production.
Attendees will learn about custom agritech solutions like crop classification, field boundary detection, yield forecasting, and soil moisture analytics and implementation methodologies (technology and data) by EOSDA’s projects. The upcoming deployment of the EOS SAT — the agri-focused satellite constellation — will also be the topic for discussion. The event duration is up to 1.5 hours.
The webinar will be helpful for agricultural cooperatives, agricultural banks, food producers, IT, telecom, and consulting companies from the United Kingdom.

Two main challenges for the global agriculture industry are climate change and the increasing world population. Looking for ways to overcome these negative impacts and increase productivity while reducing production expenses and environmental footprint, UK food producers try precision farming techniques. The number of English farms following this agriculture approach has risen by 9% since 2012–2013 and amounted to nearly 27% in 2020–2021. The growth of the market size of the precision agriculture systems and services industry reflects this trend: 3.1% per year on average between 2017 and 2022. The sector’s market size reached £106.6 million this year.
Brijesh Thoppil, Director of Strategic Partnerships at EOS Data Analytics, will discuss the following topics:
- The agriculture industry in the UK: Latest challenges and opportunities.
- Harnessing the power of space: Satellite tech for farming.
- Solutions for agri coops, food producers, telecom, and consultancy businesses.
- The goals, implementation, and results of crop classification, field boundary detection, yield forecasting, and soil moisture projects by EOSDA.
- EOS SAT — the first commercial satellite constellation to generate data for agricultural use cases will be deployed by a company using remote sensing.
I’m excited to meet with UK-based agriculture industry representatives and related businesses and discuss what opportunities the implementation of satellite imagery analytics can bring. I’ll explain how our specialists use machine learning and deep learning techniques for drawing useful information (patterns and trends) from imagery, ground-truth, and weather data to answer customer questions within custom solutions.
The final webinar’s part will be about the EOS SAT constellation and the first of seven optical satellites — EOS SAT-1, which EOS Data Analytics plans to deploy in 2022. Once the seven satellites are launched in low Earth orbit by 2025, the constellation will cover up to 90% of agricultural lands across the globe.
