KAPPAZETA LTD (EE)

Summary

The main objective is to provide an operational methodologies and software components that combines the data from remote sensing satellites (in particular Sentinel‐1 and Sentinel‐2) that will allow to detect and monitor the grassland cutting and grazing. This tool is intended to be deployed by the National Paying Agencies (NPAs) which have the role to control the owners of permanent and agricultural land to insure they adhere to certain management policies of the EU Common Agriculture Policy resulting in 90% accuracy of grassland cutting detection rates, fewer in situ inspections, and decrease wrongly allocated funds due to fraudulent farmers.

The system was demonstrated to the Paying Agencies of Estonia, Denmark and Sweden and further extended to develop the service trial in Poland – Agency for Restructuring and Modernisation of Agriculture (ARMA).
