Lawrencedale Agro Processing India (Leaf), India, Leader in Integrated Agricultural technologies has collaborated with Sagri, a Japanese Agricultural technology provider roping Satellite technology and geolocation services for boosting productivity in the sector. 

Pact underscores company’s efforts under its ‘String of Pearls’ strategy to build an overall ecosystem to tackle the issues of tribal farmers infusing apt technology according to geolocation.

Satoshi Nagata of Sagri, said, “Since satellite data can be obtained over a wide area and in a homogeneous manner, its usefulness is expected. However, on the other hand, it is difficult for end users to directly utilise satellite data. It is this gap that LEAF-Sagri partnership will address and provide information appropriately.”

Palat Vijayaraghavan, founder and CEO, Lawrencedale Agro Processing India, (Leaf) said, “Leaf’s strategic alignment with Sagri leverages the developments in satellite technology, analyses the vegetation index acquired from satellite data and uses machine learning technology to solve the major agricultural issues. It is not just an app that provides data that can be obtained from satellites, but an algorithm that connects to the solution.”

“We use satellite imagery to calculate the NDVI (Normalised Difference Vegetation Index) of the farmland over a period of time. This is further helped by additional data such as area of farmland, distance of the farmland from the main road, water supply and weather or climate within that region,” added Vijayaraghavan, CEO, Leaf.

“When we can predict the quality of the produce along with the yield, it gives the farming ecosystem with much needed confidence to come with multiple services such access to organised farm credit and farm insurance,” concluded Vijayaraghavan.

This collaboration will be leveraged to predict harvest yield and Improve nutrition content. Under this issue, both firm will also enable AI to read the pattern of yield, aiding prediction in yield as whole.
