Automatized crop monitoring, field by field, at any scale

Kermap contributes to sustainable farming initiatives by providing crop analytics through satellite analysis. We combine expertise in remote sensing and artificial intelligence to deliver quick, large-scale multi-year crop identification. Our indicators and datavisualization tools provide actionable crop monitoring to anticipate on market trends, assess logistics needs, and certify the impact of environmental incentives for players involved in the transition to sustainable agriculture.

Crop identification from satellite imagery

Our innovative AI models enhance traditional crop identification using remote sensing, with gains in accuracy, velocity and scalability.

These deep learning techniques for instance proved successful in producing the first Europe and crop map in 2020 available on our demo platform, with the corresponding stats of production areas.

Crop identification for environmental services

You are a public actor, company, farm co-op, or non-profit organization involved in a greening or payment for ecosystemic services programme (PES) ? Our crop monitoring processes provide you with efficient tools and relevant indicators to support farming professionals towards the adoption or sustainable agriculture practices.

Crop analytics produced by Kermap support agroecology initiatives relying on soil conservation – such as EarthWorm Foundation’s participation au programme Sols Vivants Besides, Earth observation data can also contribute to water quality preservation, chemical input limitation or carbon sequestration.

Carbon offset for agriculture

Objective criteria to calculate carbon offset ? Through satellite data, crop analytics have some in store. We provide large-scale monitoring of farming practices fostering soil carbon storage, through the identification of crop rotation or cover crops among others.

These indicators produced by remote-sensing supply key contributions to carbon offset measurement. Players active in the carbon credit field can thus improve the reliability of their initiatives to encourage the reduction of CO2 emissions.
