Abstract

The RIICE project aims to develop a national rice information system that provides timely and accurate information on rice area, production, yield estimates, and production losses due to calamities to address food security and crop insurance purposes. This project makes use of remote sensing imagery from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) platforms to generate reliable rice area maps and derives crop status information from the imagery as input to a crop growth simulation model (CGSM) to estimate yield. All image analysis is performed with MAPscape-RICE in a fully automatic way and yield estimation is performed with Oryza2000 CGSM. Preliminary results of the project in Leyte, Philippines show promising results.
