Project GCP/PAK/125/USA

The project: "Agricultural Information System - Building Provincial Capacity in Pakistan for Crop Estimation, Forecasting, and Reporting based on the integral use of Remotely Sensed Data" focuses on enhancing and improving current systems for the integral use of remotely sensed data into existing data collection, analysis, and dissemination systems as well as the development of pad complementary systems to enable the integration of satellite remotely-sensed data and improved field estimates for area and yield forecasting and estimation as well as continuous crop status monitoring.
