|Pests and diseases cause significant losses to harvest, especially for subsistence farmers. The development of pests and diseases is mostly driven by environmental factors, some of which can be measured using earth observation data. Assimila integrates earth observation and meteorological data into pest development models to provide early warning of increased risk to crops. Dissemination of this information to agronomists and farmers helps preparedness and response, resulting in fewer crops lost.
