EO data assimilation workflow prototype
- Host Institution:
ICRISAT | agCelerant-Senegal, Dakar, Senegal
- Supervisors :
Pierre C. Sibiry Traore | Steven Ndung’u | Cedric Champenois
- Project Description:
Prediction of plot-level smallholder yields at scale is expensive due inter-farm variability in management. New EO sensors hold potential to monitor crop response in small plots. Building on past STARS and NADiRA project data, this internship will prototype a remotely sensed leaf area index assimilation workflow for improved yield prediction in agCelerantTM, contributing to the CASCAID (CCAFS) and HEURISTICS (Habitus) projects.
- Expected outcome:
Earth Observation helps reduce uncertainty in plot-level estimates of smallholder yields.
