Agriculture

Overview

Satellite derived seasonal cropping pattern, experiments on yield estimation, estimation of net-sown crop area and agricultural drought assessment studies are conducted. Presently,  studies are in progress on development of new techniques and methodologies for providing space inputs for Crop Insurance Decision Support System (CIDSS), crop intensification, mapping and inventory and assessment of high value crops, horticulture inventory, agricultural drought  vulnerability assessment, soil-vegetation-atmosphere flux studies over different agro-ecosystems, pilot studies on hyper spectral remote sensing applications for crop condition assessment.

The future vision of agriculture applications are - Crop Surveillance Systems,  local to regional scales, customized information through  user friendly Dashboards for Multi-purpose Decision Support.
