Presentation: Using Satellite Information to Predict Local Yields

This presentation describes the results of a Tanzania yield survey. This included historic yield data from 397 paddy plots for farmers in 10 villages within our study region. The data include yield/acre, fertilizer use, start/end of season, weather events (droughts/floods). Farmers also indicated the approximate location of their plot(s) on a satellite map The study included a survey of all the areas used for paddy production using GPS. These areas include all the plots for which we collected historic yield data.

This presentation took place at UC Davis on July 19, 2012.
