Satellite Remote Sensing (SRS) plays a vital role in mapping and monitoring agriculture resources. Remote sensing with its capability to repetitively acquire synoptic images can be employed to classify various types of crops, provide crop area estimation, monitor crop health and crop growth and assist in crop production and yield estimations. Important areas of application are;

  • Crop area estimation
  • Crop yield production forecasting and estimation
  • Drought monitoring and modeling
  • Water logging, salinity and land degradation modeling
  • Crop health monitoring
  • Precision agriculture
  • Crop calendar based yield gap analysis
