Satellite Monitoring of Crop Yields
This figure appears in the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Year 2010 report.
An example of crop monitoring using satellite data to determine agricultural production using MODIS instruments on research satellites. In a) an area of severe drought is identified in the Fertile Crescent of the Near East. In b) a comparison is made for all the cropped areas in Iraq between the 2000 to 2007 mean conditions and the 2007/2008 growing season. These data have proven to be extremely useful for monitoring global food production. Credit: I. Reshef, University of Maryland.
