The regular and timely monitoring of agricultural resources at regional to local scale is vital for economic and environmental purposes, as well as for appropriate response to food security issues at global scale. Remote sensing has shown a high potential to provide valuable information regarding the extent, status and management of agricultural land at various spatial and temporal scales.
With this special issue we compile state-of-the-art research that specifically addresses various aspects of the agricultural systems: national to global monitoring activities, crop area estimates and yield predictions, retrieval of crop biophysical characteristics, data assimilation in mechanistic crop growth models, application of remote sensing in precision agriculture (e.g., irrigation water management, fertilization). Review contributions are welcomed as well as papers describing new measurement concepts/sensors.
