Abstract

The JRC's pilot project for the application of remote sensing to agricultural statistics was set up with the aim of improving the collection of statistical information and agricultural forecasts in Europe. The project is structured around regional inventories, crop monitoring and yield indicators and yield forecast models, as well as rapid estimates of areas and potential yield. The first results of this project and of similar projects in the United States and Canada are presented. Programmes and parallel developments in other countries are also discussed.
