The European Union develops satellite navigation for Brazilian farmers

The University of Nottingham is working with Brazilian and EU partners to solve atmospheric interference problems that hamper satellite-based positioning in equatorial countries like Brazil.

The research network will support the advancement of precision agriculture, which aims to make crop farming practices cheaper, greener and more efficient, using satellite positioning and remote sensing.

These technologies rely on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) to obtain centimeter-accurate coordinates on Earth. Farmers use this real-time precise data to optimize fertilizer use, to steer driverless machinery and for soil mapping.
