Monitoring agricultural water productivity:
Satellite data used for near real-time database

SLM Factsheet

FAO is developing a publicly accessible near real-time database using satellite data that will allow monitoring of agricultural water productivity.This database can be used to propose solutions to reduce water productivity gaps while taking into account ecosystems services and the equitable use of water resources

It will be presented at a workshop at the next World Water Week, in Stockholm, The discussion will focus on the approach followed and to which extent the data generated can be used in practice by policy makers, water managers and farmers.

FAO Water Report 41
Yield gap analysis of field crops
pixel
pixel
This new report reviews methods for yield gap analysis, clarifying definitions and techniques to measure and model actual, attainable and potential yield at different scales in space and time and using case studies to illustrate different approaches.

The publication is a contribution to advance global water and food security through improvements in water and land productivity. It discusses methods to measure yield gaps, and ways to diagnose the root causes of yield and water productivity gaps and the actions that will be needed to close yield gaps in both small and large scale cropping systems.
