EUROMED Crop Monitoring Workshop 2014

List of all the Sigma news


VITO is attending the EUROMED Crop Monitoring Workshop 2014 (November 19-21, 2014), bringing together the crop monitoring community of practice from the 2 sides of the Mediterranean, to share the most recent results and achievements as well as to identify the future prospects in particular related to space policies.
Agriculture and Food Security is one of the main priorities in the Mediterranean countries where crop production is highly dependent of rainfalls and importation becomes vulnerable to the extreme volatility of food commodity markets. Timely and objective forecasts on crop production are indispensable to manage stocks, trade or to anticipate crisis.
As such it is clear that this workshop nicely fits the SIGMA objective in crop monitoring and support of the GEOGLAM AMIS system.
