2019 Climate & Crop Report

Geosys has been monitoring crops across the globe using industry-leading satellite and weather data for more than 30 years. Through the unbiased lens of data analytics, our team has evaluated the impact of climate change on crop production in key growing regions. The need for sustainable agricultural practices is undeniable. Through enhanced crop monitoring, we can support better management decisions in-season and mitigate risk in order to meet the demands of a growing population. Since the 1980s, each decade has been warmer than the previous one as the average global temperature has risen by approximately 1.1°C (1.98°F) since the pre-industrial era. While 2016 remains the warmest year – due to the warming impact of a very strong El Niño event in addition to the climate change trend – 2019 was the second warmest year on record.
