On July 5, at 10 AM CT, EOS Data Analytics, a global provider of AI-powered satellite imagery analytics, will host an open-door webinar on advances in precision agriculture in Mexico’s agricultural sector and the purpose of satellite tools in supporting field operations. The event will be in Spanish and last up to 1.5 hours.
The webinar will be useful for crop growers, food producers, input suppliers, insurance companies, and other industry representatives working in Mexico. EOSDA, AgriCenter Zevilla, Cosmocel, S.A., and Der Neue Horizont Re, S.A. (DNHR) will discuss how agriculturalists can benefit from precision agriculture practices.
Registration is openSIGN UP
Among the speakers will be:
- Dmytro Svyrydenko, Business Development Manager at EOS Data Analytics
- Dr. Gregorio Núñez Hernández, Marketing and Development Leader at AgriCenter Zevilla, a provider of products for crops and technical services for crop production
- Francisco Javier Martinez Mas, Strategic Planning and Innovation Coordinator at Cosmocel, S.A., a provider of specialty solutions for the agricultural market
- Efrain Lechuga Valencia, Claims Manager at Der Neue Horizont RE, S.A., the reinsurer of agricultural risks
Our partners and we are excited to discuss how following the tech-infused approach to farm management can lead the agro entrepreneurs toward improved productivity and rational use of natural resources, crop chemicals, as well as labor savings and reduction in fuel consumption. I believe the wider adoption of such technologies as satellite monitoring will allow Mexico to boost the industry’s growth. The sector growth, of course, implies more earnings for farmers. Thanks to constant access to up-to-date data about weather and the state of fields, they could minimize harmful influence of climate-related events to crops and generally maintain optimal conditions for their growth.

The presenters will discuss these topics:
- Precision agriculture in Mexico and its role in transforming the Latin American market
- Agriculture in the digital age: Turning challenges into opportunities with smart farming tools. Presentation by AgriCenter Zevilla.
- How our sales representatives improved their productivity and increased customer loyalty by using satellite imagery for daily tasks. Use case by Cosmocel, S.A.
- Use case by Der Neue Horizont RE, S.A: The EOSDA Crop Monitoring remote sensing technology for insurance companies.
- Prospects of using satellite monitoring for Mexican agribusinesses.
- EOS SAT — the first commercial agriculture-focused satellite constellation to be launched by a company using remote sensing.
Introduction of precision agriculture with satellite monitoring has led AgriCenter Zevilla to improve technical services for crop production. We now can follow our customer production programs through satellite imagery to provide better client support. We have improved our soil management, hybrid selection, seeding rates, fertilization programs, irrigation, and harvested practices by matching satellite imagery with our field data. So, statistical analysis of satellite images and field data has allowed us to identify critical factors for crop production.
Dr. Gregorio Núñez HernándezMarketing and Development Leader at AgriCenter Zevilla
Besides differentiating the company in the current market, satellite imagery helped the team upgrade diagnostic tools for product positioning and give more accurate crop management recommendations. This data also allowed employees to detect possible issues in the fields. The engagement with clients has improved.
Francisco Javier Martinez MasStrategic Planning and Innovation Coordinator at Cosmocel, S.A.
All agriculture players — input suppliers, financial agents (banks), insurers, and food producers — reap the benefits from precision farming tools and technologies. Farmers, for instance, can manage resources (inputs, water, machinery) to achieve great productivity at the lowest possible cost while minimizing environmental harm. We use satellite crop monitoring technology since it allows us to validate plant conditions in the shortest possible time.
