Crop Suitability

The platform projected to be developed will integrate different sets of data regarding agro-climatological and soil conditions with a highest possible spatio-temporal resolution at the moment of the project proposal, which will allow identification of the different suitability areas for maize and winter wheat crops, as well as changes detected over the historical period and over the next three decades. Due to the complex research team involved (climatologists, GIS experts, agriculture scientist and software developers) and the work plan proposed, we consider that the objectives of this project can be achieved and the output will be used by public authorities and by different stakeholders such as farmers and seeds sellers in order to improve the productivity of the considered crops.
