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
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. The project will further develop
the existing crop forecasting at a provincial level through the development of a regularly
scheduled series of actionable crop production reports developed by the CRS that fully utilize
area-yield survey data, along with remotely sensed information.
