Farm monitoring system

Agricultural activity is subject to various situations that threaten not only rural properties and producers, but also the business partners along the production chain — suppliers, buyers and financial institutes. The SIMFaz line of products allow monitoring of environmental, social and financial risks. It is a geographic intelligence system that was created based on the analysis and processing of satellite images, combined with carefully selected and constantly updated climatic, territorial and environmental data.

What SIMFaz delivers

  • Important and timely information on the risks that farmers and rural properties are expoused, accessible via the web or applications that can be integrated with other systems already used by the client company.
  • Affordable and with different contract formats, adapting to the client’s needs. The line is sold through monthly subscription (in the software as a service, or SaaS, standard), in trial packages, or as an on-demand service.

Potential clients

Banks, credit unions, investment funds, grain traders, refineries, meat packers, and manufacturers of agricultural input, machinery and agricultural implements.

What is offered

SIMFaz is composed of three independent and complementary modules: Socioenvironmental , Rural Property Assessment   e Crop .


SIMFaz allows monitoring whether the rural properties and their owners are compliant with socio-environmental KPIs. The product offers a comprehensive checklist of automatic queries, customized according to socio-environmental requirements and ESG policies that each client must meet — the system generates alerts when something is noncompliant. For example, it can query the regularity of the Rural Environmental Registry (CAR), whether there are bans from Ibama or SEMA, and whether the property is negatively listed in the labor analogous to slavery conditions. The system identifies overlapping conflicts with environmental preservation areas, indigenous areas, quilombolas, and other special areas. Based on georeferenced data or CAR limits, it is possible to check the regularity of Amazônia Protege from MPF, Soy Moratorium -- available for signatories --besides deforestation identified by PRODES/Inpe, among others. The information of each query remains stored for auditing and validation of the results.


SIMFaz enables assessment of the attributes used to perform the valuation of a property, such as distance to cities or regional poles; soil type and agricultural suitability; altitude and slope; rainfall history, and agricultural cluster characteristics. Time series of satellite images are used to analyze the historical agricultural production, and the land use and land cover changes of the property to check its compliance with the Forest Code. Based on this diagnosis, Agrosatélite and its partners have developed an optional method for remote valuation of a property.


During the financial contracting phase for credit or insurance, SIMFaz evaluates the historical crop performance, to minimize risks. SIMFaz also integrates the continued monitoring of crop development throughout the growth cycle. This is performed using satellite images (at most 4 images per week) and a wide range of field data, besides the use of rainfall data associated with soil types. Agrosatélite estimates the potential yield of major crops, such as soy, corn, cotton, and sugarcane, and the risk of yield losses at up to three different crop growth stages during the season. The SIMFaz module is compatible with the Resolution 4.427/2015 of the Central Bank of Brazil, which establishes the rules to use remote sensing images to supervise rural credit operations by the financial institutions.
