FertiSat at AgroShow 2019
For 20 years, Agro Show in Bednary near Poznań has been the largest outdoor agricultural exhibition in Europe. This year, from 19 to 22 September, the fair’s area exceeded 130 ha, there were 130,000 visitors and more than 7oo companies represented.
We were one of those firms that had their booth at Agro Show for the first time – it attracted a lot of interest from visitors. We demonstrated the way of using FertiSat service, informed about its available and planned functionalities, and we learned the opinions and needs of customers. The presence at the Fair was also an excellent opportunity to establish new business contacts in the agricultural sector.
We encourage farmers and agronomists to use FertiSat service and we invite other parties to contact us to discuss business cooperation in further development and popularization of the service.

A new version of FertiSat service
We have implemented a new version of Fertisat that allows farmers to use the service more efficiently on tablets and smartphones as well as we have enriched application maps with a new file format: ISO-XML. The application is now responsive, which means that the appearance and layout of the pages smoothly adjust to the size of the browser window. FertiSat clearly presents field views and application maps on both large screens and small displays, which is important, since many farmers prefer to use the service on their mobile devices.
Moreover, we implemented the PWA technology (Progressive Web Application), thanks to which FertiSat works as a native mobile or a desktop application, i.e. offline or in a full-screen mode. The service can now be started by clicking the icon on a home screen, and the application can be added to the home screen from a browser level.
ISOBUS system is more and more widely used in modern agricultural machinery, as it enables communication between tractors and various types of machines. To fit in the trend of ISOBUS growing popularity among our clients, we have provided access to application maps compatible with that technology.
A conference paper at the Living Planet Symposium
Prof. Włodzimierz Rączkowski (Institute of Archeology, University of Poznań) and Dominik Ruciński (Wasat) took an active part in the Cultural & Natural Heritage session at the Living Planet Symposium 2019 presenting a paper “Cooling down enthusiasm: potential vs. practice in application of EO techniques in archaeological research and heritage management – have lessons been learned?” The presentation was followed by a lively discussion on the use of optical and radar satellite remote sensing by archaeologists. The paper was based on the experience gained during implementation of research projects funded by the European Space Agency.
Wasat’s management team is comprised of experts with multi-year professional background in satellite applications and IT sectors. The company cooperates with many universities and research institutions in Poland and abroad, it is equipped with the state-of-the-art software and research infrastructure and it provides clients with advisory services and training possibilities.
