Crop Monitoring Toolbox
The Crop Monitoring “CM Box ” offers software and data for rapidly setting up a national crop monitoring and forecasting system. It assesses the impact of weather on crop production. Training is provided upon request.
The CM Box offers an easy solution for rapidly setting up an operational crop monitoring and forecasting system. In the initial phase, reference data as well as real-time satellite and weather data based on international sources can be provided by FAO headquarters. However, over the duration of the project, more and more national data will be used, as local know-how increases.
Interested countries will receive a combination of training, hardware and software customized for local use, as well as the real-time data required to operate the system. The package can be tailored to suit countries' specific requirements, based on national preferences as well as available expertise and data.
