HARA partners up with TerraSphere to improve visibility in the field

Feb 2, 2019 · 2 min read

The firm belief that data sharing in the agriculture value chain can help improve the productivity of smallholder farmers brought together HARA and TerraSphere in a new partnership. With both companies enabling data-driven decisions making for the agriculture sector, this partnership aims to leverage satellite data to improve the visibility of crop growth and productivity in the field.

TerraSphere is a Netherlands-based company that offers Geo-ICT (Geographic Information and Communication Technologies) solutions through satellite, UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) mapping, as well as GIS analysis. TerraSphere provides custom mapping products based on earth observation imagery to various companies (Arcadis, Microsoft) and government agencies.

Also, TerraSphere is involved in several initiatives, such as research and development studies for the European Space Agency and European Commission. They are also part of the G4INDO project in Indonesia, a government initiative to provide crop insurance for 200,000 rice farmers in East Java.

In the partnership, TerraSphere will act as a Value Added Service in the HARA ecosystem. TerraSphere will add analytics services for satellite data and crop monitoring. This will bring valuable information to our stakeholders, for instance for insurance companies to automate their claim process.

“When I came across HARA, I felt this was a very innovative and ambitious initiative where smallholder farmers, as well as other stakeholders, could profit from in a unique way. I like the fact that blockchain technology is being used to achieve. I’m a big fan of (blockchain-based) decentralized services as they have the potential to truly empower smallholder farmers across the globe.” — Eric van Valkengoed, Director of TerraSphere.

We are excited to welcome TerraSphere into our ecosystem! We truly believe that we are working on the same mission to create an impact by connecting all stakeholders and sharing data across the value chain.
