Crop Observation, Management Production Analysis Services System Project (COMPASS) (IPP Case Study)

The Crop Observation, Management and Production Analysis Services System (COMPASS) uses satellite Earth observation (EO) data to help smallholder farmers manage their sugar cane, maize and wheat agriculture. It helps optimise crop productivity by identifying factors that cause the yield gap between crop potential and actual field performance. It also provides agronomic support to advisory services, agribusiness, farmer co-operatives, crop insurers and governments. The service is offered through a free mobile application for the farmers and a dashboard for the supply chain users.
