Mapping Medway Horticulture to support water and business resilience


Project objectives

Using machine learning to develop an improved spatial mapping of horticultural activity across Medway, the South East River Trust hope to be able to provide more targeted support for growers about water resilience and risks related to runoff. The project aims to identify specific horticultural crop areas in relation to different levels of risk related to environmental degradation, such as run-off, flooding and soil erosion. It will also be able to highlight water availability and risks for crop irrigation.
