The study aimed at demonstrating the capabilities of remote sensing in agricultural statistics. This technique in no way replaces the work of the statistician or field researcher, but considers the spatial aspect of the phenomena they seek to measure. The strategy proposed within the monitoring project aims to improve coverage of crop yields and areas, as well as to enhance the effectiveness of researchers in the field. At the same time it recognises the inevitable limits of the information gathering techniques.
