Agriculture / Drought
The yield prognosis based on vegetation indices derived from satellite data from NOAA/AVHRR and TERRA/MODIS satellites are made by our specialists.
Remote sensing gives information which can be used to discover bad condition for plant growth caused by drought.
The project has pilot research character and its realization is aimed at preparation of Smart Villages concept for mazowieckie voivodeship and for strengthening collaboration between territorial units and research institutions.
The main goals of the project were to identify agricultural drought on the territory of Poland through monitoring of crop growth conditions within vegetation season and to estimate yield reduction caused by unfavorable conditions. The project’s objectives were achieved through application of the method for identification of crop growth conditions based on the satellite drought index DISS.
The Action is principally focused on capacity building and raising awareness of the various stakeholders, responsible in Poland as National Action looking internationally for monitoring and management of the environment, on the scope of applications of the Earth Observation data and services developed in the frame of Copernicus products.
The scientific goal of the task is to develop and then implement a detailed concept and analysis of comparative benefits, as a result of the use of satellite images, and to evaluate the possibility of using satellite data to improve the productivity of individual institutions as well as the accuracy and quality of activities.
The main objective of the project is to improve identification and monitoring of agricultural crops and methods for assessing the effects of extreme weather phenomena. As a result of the project work, there will be developed a system allowing the use of satellite data, wider use of administrative data, getting more targeted data earlier, developing low-aggregated crop data also in spatial perspective.
The main goal of the project is to prepare the operational system for crop growth monitoring , based on synergy of new-generation satellite data from the Copernicus Programme, low-resolution satellite data, meteorological data and in-situ observations. The System will deliver information on crop condition within vegetation period, water deficit in the course of crop development, yield forecast and early warning related to crop hazards.
