Scottish precision agriculture specialists SoilEssentials Ltd, in collaboration with BARSC member Deimos Space UK, have developed KORE; a new cloud-based land management platform. KORE is being presented at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany 12-18th November.

Visitors can find SoilEssentials and KORE on stand J29 in Hall 15 and enjoy the opportunity to see this exciting and innovative farm management solution.

The companies embarked on this ambitious project three years ago, supported by the European Space Agency (ESA), when SoilEssentials Managing Director Jim Wilson recognised the opportunity and advantages that the wider availability and lower cost of Earth Observation (EO) data represented.

KORE combines EO imagery from a variety of sources including ESA’s newest Sentinel series of satellites, UAV imagery and tractor-mounted sensors – to guarantee the availability of remote-sensed data, regardless of weather and cloud conditions. This remote-sensed imagery is captured at a range of scales from centimetre level from UAV’s, 1 to 20 metres for Satellite imagery and tramline width for tractor-mounted sensors. The appropriate EO data is retrieved and opens up a new dimension for agronomists and farming companies to increase their land knowledge and offer a unique service to their clients through the KORE product. KORE is a web-based precision farming tool box to manage variation through space and time with an interface where software, hardware, services and research come together to provide an ever-expanding innovative and exciting land use management solution.
