Data is at the heart of the GROW Observatory. Explore the ways in which we are gathering and using data to help growers become better informed about their soil, to ground truth the Sentinel-1 satellite constellation and ultimately improve the accuracy of climate forecasts on floods, wildfire and drought.
Soil Moisture Maps
One of the key aims of GROW is to develop soil moisture maps that will allow farmers to accurately respond to the needs of their crop. This visualisation demonstrates the type of service that could be made available to farmers. It represents the science in an easily interpretable format that brings GROW's soil moisture data to life.
Soil Water Content
Growers of any scale can benefit from knowing the water requirements of their plants and how the soil in their local area can respond to those requirements. With this knowledge, growers can choose more appropriate crops to plant and increase their harvests. Use this tool to explore advice appropriate to your local area.
