Russia - Stavropol Kray

Specific Project Objectives & Deliverables

Mapping Agricultural Areas:       

Cropped Land
Resolution (minimum mapping unit): 5ha and 1ha
Mapping Frequency: once within growing season

Pasture/Rangeland
Resolution (minimum mapping unit): 5ha and 1ha
Mapping Frequency: yearly   

Estimating Crop Areas
Statistical Units: ha, Crop area estimations are planned to be done at least on region-level (kray level), on farm level at several cases   

Crop Growing Conditions Over the Growing Season
The following parameters are to be estimated: Temperature, Precipitation, Soil Moisture, humus, NPK

Estimation of Biophysical Variables
Crop biophysical variables (NDVI, biomass, fAPAR, LAI, yield, fCover). NDVI and LAI estimates are to be processed with web-service Vega on a weekly basis through the whole growing season.
