Abstract

The MARS project from the Space Applications Institute of the Joint Research centre has been set up to provide homogeneous and timely information on agricultural production at European level. To achieve this goal, agroeteorological-modelling techniques have been combined into a geographic information system. The Crop Growth Monitoring System is driven by meteorological conditions, modified by other environmental factors such as soil characteristics and crop parameters. CGMS is made of sub-systems that are run sequentially.
