Project Overview

Crop identification and Crop Area Estimation

  • Support vector machine, Decision tree
  • Multi-configuration SAR data
  • Integration of Optical and SAR data

Crop Condition/Stress

  • Crop Growing Conditions Over the Growing Season
  • NDVI, NDWI, Vegetation condition index, temperature condition index, crop water stress index, etc.

Estimation of Biophysical Variables

  • FAPAR, LAI-Radiation transfer model
  • chlorophyll content-Radiation transfer model/regression analysis

Yield Prediction and Forecasting

  • Biomass-modified CASA model
  • Harvest index

Crop Residue

  • Crop residue biomass estimation

Phonological Events

  • Crop mature date prediction
  • NDVI threshold method

The mapping resolution is 30 metres.

Timeliness (with regards to growing season): in 1 – 2 months.

The current project phase is research and operational pilot.
