AbstractCrop and soil information products derived from data acquired by airborne and satellite sensors could provide valuable input for precision farming. The Canada Centre for Remote Sensing is actively pursuing the development of information products from both hyperspectral and polarimetric radar sensors. Preliminary results suggest that crop physical parameters including Leaf Area Index, canopy water content, chlorophyll and percent crop cover can be derived from hyperspectral imagery. Patterns related to soil and crop conditions are visible on radar imagery. Ground data collected coincident with hyperspectral and radar acquisitions are currently being used to validate these image products.
