Wanted – farmers with fields prone to waterlogging!

Farming Online are looking to source some fields from willing farmers that are prone to waterlogging - to train a satellite model. This is part of a major Liver Fluke Early Detection project we are undertaking with Liverpool University (Updating the Ollerenshaw Risk Model)

We are investigating methods of snail habitat sourcing by using satellite and for this we need access to any grassland fields that are prone to waterlogging.

All we need is a picture of the field and the latitude and longitude of the field’s location using i-phone or google maps.

We won’t publish the data, it’s purely to train a model to make sure it functions correctly.

Please send to liver-fluketrial@farming.co.uk and thankyou in advance.

Using google maps on your phone:

Press on the location of the field and a pin will drop

Tap drop pin

Tap share icon

Tap message and email it to liver-fluketrial@farming.co.uk

Send – that will send us the co-ordinates.
