CyStellar Ceres

Tranforming Data into Insights
A Cloud-Based Crop and Farm Management Solution

CyStellar Ceres

Actionable Intelligence for Farmers

RESCUE SUPPORT

Precision Agriculture is all about smart-decision making. And decision making should be always based on pertinent timely data coming directly from your farm. By constantly monitoring farms from space, air and ground, CyStellar helps farmers and agronomists to have a clear understanding of what is happening in each individual field and during each crop growth stage. We transform the data into actionable insights and help farmers achieve their goals of optimising inputs, maximising yields, and improving sustainability.

Ceres Platform Functionality

The CyStellar Ceres Platform makes it possible to collect and leverage huge amounts of critical data at minimal costs, thus making a farm’s field operations more insight driven, and potentially more productive and efficient through all the crop growth stages.

Benefits for the Farmers

Our Ag-Tech applications integrate geo-referenced information from a variety of sources including satellite imagery, drone-based surveillance, weather forecasts, ground-based sensors, and other social, societal, political, and economic information in order to provide actionable intelligence to farmers – large and small – at a reasonable cost.

Up to 20% Profit Margin Increase

due to increased crop yield and field productivity and cost reduction.

Variable Rate Application

of seeding, fertilizing and pesticide spraying to match field variability.

A 5% to 20% increase in yield

due to more effective use of chemicals and crop performance analysis.

Uncertainity reduction

in the farm's management process.

Up to a 40% cost reduction

as a result of eliminating the unnecessary use of fertilizers or irrigation water

Support for just in-time irrigation

and precision planting.

Satellite Imagery

Satellite data enables farmers to monitor crop progress very closely and to take corrective action precisely where it is needed, thus resulting in greater efficiency and sustainability. CyStellar provides access to multispectral and hyperspectral satellite imagery and analysis which provides a unique information about the soil quality, humidity, temperature and atmospheric conditions. and analyse the development of biomass and the nitrogen and starch content in the crops. In addition the satellites collect information on numerous other aspects such as changes in water quality, forestation and the environment. The CyStellar Ceres process all these information and transform it into actionable insights for the farmers.

Drone Surveillance

With the help of drone surveillance data we can clearly distinguish areas of the field where a crop is growing well from those where it is not, enabling zones to be created to target the right amount of fertiliser application to each spot on the field. Due to the way the plant reacts to stresses, the drone captured data can also reveal the presence of weeds, pests, water damage, and other problems giving the grower the information necessary to identify and quantify problems mid-season and then determine how to best address them.

The Ground-Sensors Platform

Data from ground sensors including temperature, frost, leaf wetness, soil moisture, soil chemistry, and others, seamlessly integrated into CyStellar Ceres through an IoT wireless network.

pic

Temperature Sensor

Measures the ambient temperature

pic

Humidity Sensor

Measures the moisture levels in the environment.

pic

Leaf Wetness Sensor

Detects leaf wetness and ice formation in plant canopies resulting from rainfall, irrigation, and/or dew.

pic

Atmospheric Pressure Sensor

Barometric pressure sensors measure the absolute pressure of the air around them. This pressure varies with both the weather and altitude.

pic

Soil Temperature and Moisture Sensor

It measures the soil temperature and volumetric water content in the soil on the basis of the dielectric constant of the soil. The data is useful to proceed with the irrigation.

pic

Solar Radiation and Ultraviolet Radiation Sensor

Measures solar radiation for evapotranspiration (ET) and UV sensor that reveals UV rays which affect the plant growth and the control of pathogens.

pic

Weather Station: Anemometer, Pluviometerm Wind Vane

Anemometers, barometers, a thermo-hygrometers and rain gauges in order to reveal wind, atmospheric pressure, temperature, relative humidity, dew point, frost and rainfall used to optimize irrigation and treatments

pic

Soil Chemical Composition Sensors

Electrochemical sensors for estimating soil nutrient levels and pH levels.
