India-Vijayawada

Overview

The major goal of the current research experiments is to develop methodologies and cross-validation for crop biophysical parameters (LAI, biomass) estimations methodologies, and seasonal crop inventory maps generation. We are also actively involved in investigating improved vegetation indices for crop growth monitoring. The current products require mainly the quad- and compact-pol Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) observations along with in-situ measurements.

Project Objectives

Mapping Agricultural Areas

Operational Implementation Plan

The test site is the major producer of rice (Oriza sativa). Appart from rice, major annual crops include sugarcane (
