Moscow, April 27. /TASS/.  Scientists from Siberian Federal University (SFU) directed by professor Yuri Maglinz developed an automated system for agromonitoring. Currently, the newly-implemented program is tested by agriculturists from Sukhobuzimsky district, as well as by representatives of region authority.

According to the press release, scientists are testing new tools for agromonitoring and marking the seeding plan for 2016. Assisted by employees and students from the Institute of Space and Information Technologies SFU, the inventory of agriculturally used areas is performed in Irbeysky, Novosiolovsky, and Minusinsky Districts based on satellite imaging of corresponding areas.

The new system combines methods for remote probe of Earth, technologies of Geo Information System, and landscape mapping. It allows for tracking the dynamics of the objects of the geological substrate, for estimating usage of argiculturally allocated areas and state of seeding complemented by joint analysis of data from Federal Service for State Registration, Cadastre, and Cartography, agrochemical services, ground investigations, and other sources of information.

The scientists have noted, that the systems assists organizing and automatizing of electronic document flow between agriculturer producers and representatives of the Municipal District Council. Generated reports contain the information on the seeding plans for the next operational season and the summary on the planting to the accuracy of individual fields.
