Abstract

This report presents the methodology used by the JRC for the identification of homogeneous agricultural areas climatologically and pedologically based for Italy. The purpose of this activity is to map homogeneous areas for a successive evaluation with field measurements of yield, and represents a first step to build a multi-risk insurance scheme covering climatic effect on yield.
