Specific Project Objectives & Deliverables

Mapping Agricultural Areas:

  • Land Cover: Mapping Frequency: Every 5-10 years
  • Cropped Land: Mapping Frequency: Every 5-10 years
  • Pasture/Rangeland: Mapping Frequency: Every 5-10 years
  • Forest Areas: Mapping Frequency: Every 5-10 years
  • Landscape includes all the above elements allowing for coordination of mapping effort.

Estimating Crop and Forest Areas

  • Statistical Units: Field-based

Crop Growing Conditions Over the Growing Season: temperature, precipitation, soil moisture, evapotranspiration (in-field if stations available, otherwise core climate from Itaipu).

Estimation of Biophysical Variables: NDVI, LAI, biomass, fAPAR, yield

Phenological Events

  • Stage / Timing
  • Stress

Integration of the EO-Derived Information Into Crop/Agro-Met Models

Forecasting Agricultural Variables from Crop/Agro-Met Models.
