British Sugar adopts Rezatec’s Innovative Satellite Analytics to Optimise the Supply of Sugar Beet

By GeoConnexion - 29th October 2020 - 13:47

British Sugar, the UK’s sole processor of the beet sugar crop, is working with satellite analytics company, Rezatec, to help achieve greater efficiencies in their supply chain and processing factories who are providing field-level crop classification of sugar beet and other crops. British Sugar set out to achieve better visibility across catchment areas where farmers are currently planting sugar beet and the acreage that is achieved, as well as visualising which fields are closest to each respective factory using a distance-travelled metric. Following the initial work, to meet British Sugar’s requirements, Rezatec is deploying its Supply Optimisation product, part of the Harvest SAT solution. Using both optical and radar satellite imagery, and applying its proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) approach for crop classification, Rezatec can identify sugar beet and other arable crops within catchment areas and measure the acreage organised into five-mile radial bands from four factory locations around the UK.
