Harvest forecasting in view of climate change, using satellite images

FROM SPACE

Many of the instruments that equip satellites are capable of providing data on variables that have a major impact on crop quality. For example, the Sentinel-2 satellite can be used to monitor vegetation, land use, and climate change by taking photos in 13 different spectral bands every five days. Over the long term, this can provide information on soil quality and which type of crops will be best suited to certain places. To promote the development of operational services providing access to environmental data, CNES, for example, opened the PEPS platform in 2015, offering free and open access to data from the Sentinel satellites.

TO THE CHALLENGE

Your challenge is to design a service for farming cooperatives that can be used to model the impact of climate change on crops, in order to better safeguard against risks and predict harvests. The effects can include changes in pests/vermin, changes in water needs, changes in needs for shade, and changes in pedoclimatic conditions, etc.
Model the climate impacts by writing an algorithm that can improve crop forecasts.
Describe the business model for your solution.
Then devise a design for an application, website, or user-friendly platform that can integrate all of the data and make recommendations to the various cooperatives.
Explain the benefits of your solution for the various stakeholders in the value chain.
