Daily satellite imagery from Planet
Accelerate decision making with satellite imagery from Planet, the leader in Earth imaging.
You know the importance of real-time access to the right data when it comes to making informed crop management decisions. That’s why we offer Planet’s global, high-cadence satellite imagery right within the FarmQA platform. Planet is an integrated aerospace and data analytics company that operates history’s largest fleet of Earth-imaging satellites, collecting a massive amount of information about our changing planet. Information you need to make better crop planning and health decisions.
Ag service companies and growers understand that access to the right data is essential to support informed crop management decisions. With the reliance on data increasing, high-frequency satellite imagery like that from Planet is emerging as a key source of reliable information for precision agriculture.

Preventing yield loss
High-resolution, high-frequency imagery provides field-level detail on crop health anywhere on Earth. FarmQA and Planet allow you to monitor pressure from pests like spider mites early, allowing action to be taken to preserve crops and commodity value.
With FarmQA Analytics, you gain a complete picture of the crop health of your field, including metrics derived from the Planet's NDVI imagery, allowing you to track issues with greater fidelity in the field.Learn more about FarmQA Analytics
Save time and reduce costs with directed scouting
With FarmQA, daily images from Planet are available on your mobile device. This gives you, the agronomist, the ability to direct your scouting efforts to the most critical areas of a field.
The spatial resolution and global coverage of modern satellite imaging enables directed field scouting that saves time and reduces costs. Planet imagery — Daily Satelite, NDVI, NDRE, and MSAVI — is automatically processed for each field and is available offline on the mobile app and within the FarmQA web application.Watch how to do directed scouting
Monitor crop development
Using high-frequency, high-resolution Planet data, FarmQA enables you to monitor and verify sustainable management practices such as rotating crops, conservation tillage, or cover cropping. Planet’s 3–5 meter resolution ensures data will cover even smallholder farms.
With satellite imagery, you have a comprehensive overview of their fields that allows them to detect, compare, and verify health issues or growth stages in need of treatment — including side-dress application of nitrogen, watering, fertilization, or pesticide application.
The 3m Planet difference
3m resolution satellite images from Planet will capture more detail in the reflectance values of the vegetation than a 10m resolution image, allowing for a more accurate calculation of NDVI values.
Get the precise information you need to make informed decisions about crop management, fertilizer and irrigation needs, detecting pest and disease outbreaks, and optimizing yields.
Better field analytics
By combining FarmQA Analytics with Planet imagery, we provide up-to-date information about the condition of crops, this combination of technologies can help farmers to make informed decisions about irrigation, fertilization, and pest control.
For example, our 5-year backfill of imagery plus metrics results in the ability to track NDVI on a field over all of those 5-years.Learn more about FarmQA Analytics
Frequent data updates
Frequent data means you can address problems early, before large-scale damage is done. A steady supply of satellite imagery can help you detect vegetation issues as soon as they occur, letting you know precisely when and where to act.
Further, by referencing in-field imagery data throughout the season, you'll gain an in-depth understanding of how certain actions affected crop production outcomes that year.
Easy to set up
FarmQA makes it easy to set up your fields with Planet imagery. Pick the fields,the acceptable cloud cover, and the map layer — you're ready to go. With FarmQA Analytics, easily set up tracking for average NDVI that allows you to monitor crop health daily.
