YPSILON® is a yield prediction service for key growing areas in Europe. It is based on the latest satellite imagery and plant growth modelling. Weekly updates of the predicted yield for wheat, rapeseed and maize are delivered from 8 weeks before harvest.
Among others, satellite imagery, weather data, soil, topography, and agricultural statistics are used for yield forecasting
In order to deliver relevant and up-to-date forecasts, cutting edge cloud technologies are implemented in the remote sensing processing chain
Up to date satellite images and weather data are integrated into a physical crop growth model for yield prediction in tons per hectare
The main target group for the European YPSILON® service are traders and trading companies, whereas the German service as well as the custom service, with an individually selectable region, are of special interest for mills, regional trading companies, seed growing companies, biogas plant operators or agro holdings.
