Authors: michael humber, Jon Nordling, Jon Nordling
GEO developed the GEOGLAM initiative in response to the growing calls for improved agricultural information. GEOGLAM and the Agricultural Market Information System were adopted by the G-20 as part of the action plan on food price volatility and agriculture. The Crop Assessment Tool was developed to allow partners to summarize the latest crop conditions based on their regional expertise and analysis of satellite data, ground observations and meteorological data provided through the interface.
