The Role of Crop Modeling and Remote Sensing in Rice Productivity Improvement

Dr. Tri Setiyono
Scientist, Crop Modeler
Social Sciences Division

The presentation will highlight how current advances in crop simulation modeling and remote sensing application are used to generate timely and accurate rice productivity information to support decision making for food security and economic development and for other applications. Remote-sensing data assimilation into crop simulation model effectively captures responses of rice crops to environmental conditions over large spatial coverage, which otherwise is practically impossible to achieve. Such improvement of actual yield estimates offers practical application such as in a crop insurance program. The use of process-based crop simulation model ensures climate information is adequately captured and to enable in-season yield forecast.
