Dr. Prasad Bandaru presented results from an ongoing study at the Thailand Ministry of Industry, highlighting alternative options to agriculture residue burning, which can reduce emissions and benefit soil quality.
NASA Harvest is co-organizing the sixth session of this conference, focused on "Quantifying Impact of Weather Extremes in a Changing Climate". This session emphasizes extreme weather events including heat waves, droughts and heavy precipitation, and their influence on agriculture and ecosystems, as well as human health and well-being.
Webinar: Using Satellite Imagery for Early Warning of Productivity Constraints
October 31, 2019
Register for the upcoming webinar on "Using Satellite Imagery for Early Warning of Productivity Constraints" - supported by Harvest and hosted by the IFPRI Food Security Portal. Our partners will give presentations and conduct discussions on crop yield and monitoring, using satellite data in African countries, the intersection of remote sensing and socioeconomic data with application, ground-truthed satellite data for yield mapping, and drone data for yield monitoring.
AGU 100 Fall Meeting
December 9-13, 2019
The Harvest Session "Four Decades and Counting: Earth Observations and Agricultural Monitoring" at AGU invites abstracts that demonstrate the utilization of or showcase the impact of NASA data, services, and tools for agricultural monitoring and assessment. Perspectives from researchers through end users are welcome toward weaving a cohesive narrative of the impact of NASA Earth on global agriculture and food security while identifying challenges and opportunities for enhancing the use of EO for agricultural monitoring.
