Validating field data using high definition cameras in agricultural areas in Serbia’s Vojvodina province

The CropSupport app allows farmers to easily monitor crop/plant health and offers reliable access to satellite data (Sentinel-2) and weather updates for decision support. Farmers can collect and share information about their crops in order to help LandSense scientists better understand the impacts of climate change on agricultural activities and food production.

In summer 2018, CropSupport has been the eyes and ears to more than 50 young citizen scientists involved in the LandSense agricultural change monitoring campaign in Vojvodina. This week, InoSens hosted Dr. Raphaël d’Andrimont from the Joint Research Centre, on a field trip to agricultural areas in Vojvodina, with the objective to validate the collected field-data by using high definition cameras.

Additionally, a final workshop was held at the Faculty of Sciences (University of Novi Sad), where feedback was provided to local citizen scientists who collected data via CropSupport. These activities concluded Phase I of LandSense Agriculture pilot in Serbia.
