Tracking Microclimates Could Help Feed the World
Israeli scientists develop innovative way to help farmers improve harvests via satellite climate tracking
Scientists in Israel have developed a way of using satellite images to help farmers detect small-scale changes in climate and improve their harvests, a method that could bolster food supplies for an increasingly hungry world population.
Rather than analyze the weather and topography of large swathes of land, the new system divides fields into smaller microclimates that guide farmers on the best way to work each individual plot.
It’s all about the food.
