Demographers projects earth population will reach 10 billion in 21st Century. Developing countries worry about feeding growing population. This needs satellite farming to meet food security with limited resources and protect ecosystem. This study analyzes the status, role, feasibility and successful models of satellite farming in global agriculture. The review, synthesis, meta-analysis, Delphi survey, opinion, perspectives and vision tools used. Finally, suggested strategies and policies to keep the planet safe for future generation. The results showed that Japan, China, USA, India and Europe are the major countries to contribute work on satellite farming in agriculture across the globe. Israel and Germany are the only two countries practicing satellite farming successfully in the globe. The applications of satellite farming have been utilized to predict adverse climatic conditions. The study found that satellite farming models have to adopt in developing countries particularly and Africa, Asia, Latin American countries. Developed countries like USA, UK, Europe, Australia are using satellite farming certain extent. The results showed that Japan, USA, Europe, India, France and Germany are mainly involved to monitor greenhouse gases with high precision across the space by using different satellites such as GOSTAT-2, OCO-2, OCO-3, GeoCarb, Copernicus Sentinental-5P, HySIS, MicroCarb and MERLIN. Government should conduct the trainings, conferences and meetings on importance of satellite farming. Government should encourage and attract the farmers towards precision farming by providing support financially. Worldwide network integration and mutual cooperation among the countries should be necessary to apply and spread advance technologies all over the world and in decisions to meet obligations to global climate change treaties.
