China - Jiangsu

Project Overview

Crop identification and Crop Area Estimation: Identify rice fields with its polarimetric responses and scattering mechanisms and estimate the rice acreage accurately.

Crop Condition/Stress: Rice phenological stage retrieval, providing timely and accurate information about rice growth condition, in order to plan cultivation practices (irrigation, fertilization, etc.).

Yield Prediction and Forecasting: A quantitative relationship between polarization variables and rice key parameters (biomass, LAI) will be established. Then, a crop model, taking into account the variation of the time - domain and environmental stress, will be employed for rice yield prediction.
