Agricultural Applications

Under the C3S program, Telespazio UK is the prime contractor to build an Agricultural Information System using a combination of climate data and Agricultural data and models. The focus of the project is on woody perennial crops (Olives, Forestry, Viticulture) and the production of impact indicators that are affected by climate change.  Forest growth is affected by drought, Olive quality and harvest is affected by pest infestation (linked to climate) and viticulture is affected by the harvest date.  The project encompasses development of the system, data portal and website.
