Using Remote Sensing for Calculating Crop Evapotranspiration (ETc)

(Tal Shilo, Ph.D., Chief Agronomist, Manna Irrigation,<>April 2022) If we could measure exactly how much water is getting out of the field and back to the atmosphere, we could easily replenish this amount to the soil, so the plants will get exactly what they need.

Estimating Kc on a Plot Level Using Remote Sensing and Artificial Intelligence

(Ran Pelta Ph.D., Remote sensing and data scientist<> July, 2021)This study, presented at the ECPA2021, tested Manna’s remote sensing and artificial intelligence model. Remote sensing and meteorological data were collected for almost 600 commercial processing tomato plots for better irrigation decision-making. The results show improvement in both Kc and growth stage prediction, compared to traditional crop protocols.

Frequently Asked Question

We currently support over 70 crop types and constantly examining and updating our supported crops protocols. You can check the most updated list here.

Manna’s global weather provider is meteoblue, providing a 5×5 km hyper-local weather forecast and information.
We offer the option to integrate with local weather stations providers. Currently, we support integration with Davis, iMETOS by Pessl Instruments, and Spectrum stations. To learn how to connect to your local weather station, watch this video.

Manna uses 3 satellite constellations: the European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel, NASA’s Landsat 8, and Planet scope. We also provide cloud penetrating radar-based satellite data by Sentinel 1. All of them together provide a near-daily image coverage (pending clouds and atmospheric conditions).

The image resolution can get to 3x3m per pixel for Planet images, and between 10x10m – 30x30m per pixel for sentinel and Landsat.

Clouds obviously disrupt satellite images. To keep our recommendations as accurate as possible Manna has a few sets of filters, only images that pass all filters will be presented in the crop monitoring section and included in the recommendation model. We recently added a cloud penetrating radar satellite, currently available just for limited crop types and areas.

Manna is a WebApp and therefore may be used on any device with a web browser and Internet access, such as laptops, desktops, Android smartphones, iPhones, Macs, Android tablets, iPads, etc.

No! Manna is a software-only solution, no hardware is needed. Our model is based on remote sensing by analyzing satellite images. It’s like having 100 sensors per Hectare.

Yes! Since you already get access to images, many of our growers use Manna’s near-daily images for early detection of irrigation malfunctions and crop health issues.

It’s very easy, just follow this link to start a 21-day free trial. No credit card is required. You will create your account, draw your field boundaries and enter some details such as crop, soil type, season timeline, irrigation system, irrigation routine, and that’s it. Once these are set you will start to get your field images and recommendations. If you need any support we are happy to help, just drop us a message at: support@manna-irrigation.com.

Manna is a satellite-based solution and therefore supports open field crops, orchards, and vineyards.
We do not support greenhouses and landscapes.

Manna’s vision is to provide irrigation recommendations for the smallest grower to the largest corporation. Our most accurate recommendations start at 1 Hectare field and are unlimited in size. For more than 500 hectares deal, please contact our local representatives to get a quote.

Yes! Once you generate your account you can manage users on the account settings page – provide different permissions and views.

Manna offers a few subscription plans, from a flexible PAY AS YOU GO plan – a monthly subscription-based plan in which you pay just for what you use, to pre-paid plans for 6 or 12 months. Cost starts from $5/€4 per Ha/month. To learn more visit our pricing page or contact us directly for a quote at support@manna-irrigation.com.

Manna’s subscription payments are managed by BlueSnap – one of the leading global payment platforms. If you don’t wish to use online payment by credit card, you can choose one of the pre-paid plans and make a bank transfer.

Manna representatives are located globally, check out the list of contacts here, or contact us at: support@manna-irigation.com, we promise to get back to you with 24 hours.
