The EU space programmes Copernicus and Galileo open new opportunities across all industries. Notably, the high precision systems of Galileo enable the creation of new services and applications across the agriculture industry where rising global food demand and limited natural resources require an increase in agricultural profitability and production. These requirements not only form the main drivers of precision farming techniques, but also the increase in sustainable farming solutions.
