Agricultural Remote Sensing and Decision Support Systems

Agricultural remote sensing and decision support system have been employed to bring the solution in site-specific management of crop production in the regional scales. The crops phonology indices shows the signatures effect in the water stress, plant growth and yield estimations. Our team is focusing the regional scales of remote sensing application using satellite datasets from Landsat 8, Sentinel II, MODIS imagery, and JAXA worldwide rainfall measurement platform. We have been using JAXA satellite rainfall information for forecasting and downscaling precipitation information in the macro levels of regional scales. At the same time, land surface temperature information are taken to model crop growth at the different stages. Land use and land change (LULC), land suitability assessments for crop production are developed to introduce a new concept of the geospatial insurance system to help farmers using satellite remote sensing, GIS and machine learning concepts. The Vegetation Indices and Weather-based Insurance for crop production are inlined with damaged-based insurances during crop growths.
