    Tobacco crop area and yield forecasts are important in stabilizing tobacco prices at the auction floors. Tobacco yield estimation in Zimbabwe is currently based on statistical surveys and ground-based field reports. These methods are costly, time consuming, and are prone to large errors. Remote sensing can provide timely information on crop spectral characteristics which can be Cited by: 4. They are a major constraint to crop productivity and profitability around the world caused by direct and indirect damage to valuable crops. Insect pests, pathogens, and weeds account for an estimated 45% of pre- and post-harvest losses worldwide (Pimentel, ), in addition to losses caused by vertebrate pests (Strand, ).Cited by: 5.

Crop Explorer is a clearinghouse for global agricultural growing conditions, such as soil moisture, temperature, precipitation, vegetation health and more.

"There's a lot of need for understanding, monitoring and forecasting crops globally," said John Bolten, research scientist at. Get this from a library.

Crop Forecasting By Satellite: Progress And Problems The Department of Agriculture, the Natiknal Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, arid NASA are trying to improve forecasts of foreign wheat production by using Landsat satellite imagery and weather data.

This Large Area Crop Inventory Experiment (LACIE). "The USDA does crop forecasting activities from a global scale, and one of the main pieces of information for them is the amount of water in the soil," said Iliana Mladenova, a research scientist. Time series of the Advanced Very High-Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) have been used for crop yield forecasting since the s.

Image masking was a critical component of several of these yield forecasting efforts as researchers attempted to isolate subsets of a region’s pixels that would improve their modeling.

Research highlights MODIS-NDVI can be used to predict crop yields on the Canadian Prairies one to two months before harvest. However, preliminary yield forecasts can be made by late June–early July. Generally, predicted yields were within ±10% of the actual observed yields. Models have to be updated as NDVI and crop yield data become available.

Combining NDVI Cited by: NASA Uses Satellite to Unearth Innovation in Crop Forecasting. The AMSR-E satellite instrument captured data over Africa on April 7, from which this image of global root-zone soil moisture was produced.

The data overlays a Google Earth map of the entire continent, with warmer colors of pink, orange and yellow depicting lower.

Weather Analysis and Forecasting is a practical guide to using potential vorticity fields and water vapor imagery from satellites to elucidate complex weather patterns and train meteorologists to improve operational forecasting.

In particular, it details the use of the close relationship between satellite imagery and the potential vorticity fields in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere/5(3).

CROP YIELD FORECASTING: Methodological and Institutional Aspects3 Purpose Pietro Gennari1 and François Fonteneau2 Forecasting crop production (and crop yield in particular) has been a constant concern since the beginning of the history of agriculture.

Forecasting techniques have evolved, as has. Crop monitoring and forecasting: Analysis of meteorological and climatic data allows to provide near real-time information about the crop state, in quality and quantity, with the possibility of early warning on alarm/alert situations so that timely interventions can be planned and undertaken.

The use of satellite data, in terms of vegetation indices, of the crop canopy reveals the affect of these factors on crop growth and production at temporal and spatial scale (Bairagi and Hassan. Satellite crop monitoring is the technology which facilitates real-time crop vegetation index monitoring via spectral analysis of high resolution satellite images for different fields and crops which enables to track positive and negative dynamics of crop development.

The difference in vegetation index informs about single-crop development disproportions that speaks for the. Pasadena CA (JPL) Data from the first NASA satellite mission dedicated to measuring the water content of soils is now being used operationally by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to monitor global croplands and make commodity forecasts.

The Soil Moisture Active Passive mission, or SMAP, launched in and has helped map [ ]. Crop yield forecasting is an important aspect for a developing economy so that adequate planning exercise is undertaken for sustainable growth and overall development of the country.

Weather fluctuations affect crop yield significantly during different stages of crop growing season, therefore several studies have been carried out to forecast Author: Yogesh Garde. Fore-Edge Edge of the book furthest from the spine.

Occasionally the text of a book will be put into a specialized book press and painted, often with a scene from the book or a landscape, so that the painting is invisible when the book is closed but visible when somebody bends the text and fans the pages—known as a fore-edge painting.

As extreme weather becomes more frequent and increasingly impacts the price behavior of agricultural commodities, new and more sophisticated techniques of forecasting crop yields are emerging.

One of these is remote sensing, where typically satellites are used to help make early predictions of yield across a range of crops.especially about data assimilation and crop forecasting. Workshop salient findings.

This workshop was organized to exchange knowledge on crop models and remote sensing for yield prediction, especially for heterogeneous, smallholder File Size: 2MB.
