AgHive is founded and headed by Dr. Hadi Jaafar and performs teaching and research in the fields of remote sensing, smart irrigation, and water resources management.

AgHive announced the development of AgSAT, the first mobile application in the world that optimizes food production by calculating and forecasting crop water requirements in near real time by using remote sensing technology.

The mobile app was developed as part of the IHE-Delft funded ITSET project: Integrating time-series ET mapping into an operational irrigation management framework. The app utilizes FAO WaPOR databases and allows users to select the required variable for a given geographic location (for example evapotranspiration, rainfall, crop water use, crop biomass, crop water productivity), for a defined time interval (decadal, monthly, or annual) for 2014-2018.
