Harvest Data lead Mike Humber and our partners at the UMD GLAD laboratory team up to take a closer look at what the satellite data tell us is happening in the Amazon rainforest.
A USDA NIFA multi-institutional research group focuses on improving the efficiency of water and nitrogen use and boosting soil health in the semi-arid southern Great Plains.
As part of the Harvest program, the GLAD team is continuing to work with stakeholders around the world to increase the use of Earth observations in agricultural monitoring.
Dr. Kerner works on developing machine learning solutions, including in-season crop type classification systems for the United States and other countries.
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.

2019 Joint Satellite Conference
September 28 - October 4
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.
Pecora 21 Session
October 10, 2019
A special session of Pecora 21/ISRSE 38, " NASA Harvest and Other Recent Advances in Remote Sensing of Agricultural Applications and Food Security " will emphasize how developments in sensor technology and high-performance computing have led to a renaissance in agricultural remote sensing .
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.
The " Earth Observations and Environmental Modeling for Agriculture and Food Security " session will advance the use of satellite and airborne Earth observations, ground observational networks and modeling tools to support decision in agriculture and food security.
