Satellite imagery at work Agriculture
Big data for a big country
Satellites have been capturing the stories of Australia’s rural sector for decades, watching as innovations in science and technology have fed industry growth. Now graziers and farmers are in prime position to reap the rewards of these observations from orbit.
Our imagery and data products enable land managers and agricultural producers to track drought conditions, vegetation, water quality and availability, and flood and bushfire patterns over time.
We’re working with agritech innovators, universities, government and communities to see satellite insights better adopted by Australia’s agriculture sector.

Harvesting the benefits of Earth observation
The potential for satellite and other Earth observations to deliver decision making and productivity benefits into Australia’s agriculture sector is significant, finds our report — and looking at trends in adoption of the technology, it’s clear the advantage is yet to be fully realised.
Satellite data for pasture productivity
Queensland company Cibo Labs draws on DEA data to help graziers manage more than 20 million hectares profitably and sustainably.
We’re working with Charles Sturt
From 2021 DEA will partner with Charles Sturt University and its AgriPark to help increase the uptake of satellite imagery in agriculture industries.
Future farmers will need satellites
Space-based technologies and associated products and services will need to play an increasing role in rural businesses and value chains, says this AgriFutures Australia report.
