      Yes, that is good news, Nicos. These kinds of proofs of principle encourage others too.
      Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

          The climate is changing - it affects the whole life, and in particular, agriculture, productivity. All natural cycles have begun to shift and it seems to me that if nothing changes in the near future in favor of restoring balance, there will be trouble. We are actively exploring space and at the same time, we cannot do anything sensible for ourselves, for our home planet. I came across an interesting development called "Improving Agricultural Sustainability using Satellites", but I think that such a thing will initially only be available to state-owned enterprises or very large farms. And the owners of modest farms still need to rely on their own strength.

            Smaller farms have drones and use the images to make a dosing program for there muck spreaders or chemical application.

              Some farmers are changing their agricultural practices too and moving over to no till and min till. Increasingly fields are now worked without being ploughed. Apart from the savings made by using less diesel, carbon isn't released to atmosphere as the soil is disturbed. The extent of carbon release caused by ploughing is explained quite well in the Kiss The Ground documentary.
              The film (about 1.5hrs long) is on Netflix if you have it or there's a subtitled version currently on YouTube (link below).
