SIMFaz

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 Compliance, Rural Property Assessment and Crop Monitoring.

SOCIOENVIRONMENTAL COMPLIANCE

SIMFaz can monitor whether the rural properties and their owners are in compliance with the socio-environmental criteria to which they must adapt. The module offers a comprehensive checklist of automatic queries, according to the compliance policy 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, and whether the property is negatively listed among employers that submit workers to slave-like work conditions. The system identifies whether there are crops in indigenous areas, quilombolas, environmental preservation areas or illegally deforested areas (with access to the Amazônia Protege and Soy Moratorium databases —available to signatories — and to the deforestation data collected by PRODES/Inpe among others). The information of each query remains stored for auditing and validation of the results.

RURAL PROPERTY ASSESSMENT

Enables assessment of the value attributes of properties, such as ease of access and quality of logistic infrastructure; proximity to cities or regional poles; soil type and agricultural suitability; altitude and slope; weather history and characteristics of the agricultural cluster. Through the analysis of a historical satellite image series, the property’s agricultural production area and the land use/land cover changes over recent years are determined in order to verify its compliance to the Forest Code. Based on this broad diagnosis of the property, Agrosatélite also carries out property valuation in partnership with Agroconsult.

CROP MONITORING

Enables monitoring of crop development during the crop year. This is done through satellite images, a large field database, and rainfall indices associated with different soil conditions. Agrosatélite estimates the potential yield of major crops, such as soy, corn, cotton and sugarcane, and the risk of possible yield losses at up to three different crop growth stages during the season. The module is compatible with Resolution 4.427/2015 of the Central Bank of Brazil, which deals with the use of remote sensing by financial institutions to supervise rural credit operations.
