Argentina’s National Commission for Spatial Activities (CONAE) participated in agricultural trade fair Expoagro held on 7-11 March 2017 in Buenos Aires. The agency presented their SAOCOM mission to potential users there. SAOCOM Earth’s observation mission uses SAR (Syntetic Aperture Radar) information to generate products that can be used in agriculture and hydrology, e.g. soil moisture maps. In particular, the satellite imagery products can help the farmers in decision-making related to crop cultivation like sowing, fertilization and irrigation.
