Aratos Earth Observation Data Platform supports a new map layer for Agriculture Applications.

In the renewed system of Aratos Earth Observation Data Platform the renewal of the Dry Matter Productivity index is added. Dry matter Productivity (DMP) represents the overall growth rate or dry biomass increase of the vegetation and is directly related to ecosystem Net Primary Productivity (NPP), however with units customized for agro-statistical purposes (kg/ha/day). DMP is used | for Crop monitoring, Yield forecasting, and Carbon sequestration / Net Primary Productivity (NPP).

In order to achieve the maximum possible production by photosynthesis, the produced dry matter must be disposed of as much as possible in the harvested part of the plant.


We continue to innovate with space technologies since 2005.
