CAMEOS technology package is designed to increase the use of Earth observation techniques for crop yield prediction and livestock projection at the national and regional level in the African continent.
Identification of cropland and livestock grazing areas by cutting-edge methods to zoom from fine resolution (10-30m) to coarse resolution (250m) on a national scale will encourage effective risk management strategies.
- Improved seasonal monitoring of agricultural production of crops and livestock.
- Early warning of abiotic and biotic stresses on the productivity of crops and rangeland grazing areas.
- Enhanced crop yield and rangeland productivity forecast procedures for near-real time prediction of food supply at different spatial and temporal scales.
Below is an example of EO agricultural monitoring in Spain (source ESA).
