GC12C:
Sustainable Global Agricultural Production Monitoring Practices and Methods I


Session ID#: 10410

Session Description:
Monitoring, modeling, and methods to assess changes in agricultural systems and practices at local to global scales aid understanding and managing global food security, sustainability practices, and environmental/climate impacts and feedbacks. Remote sensing, GIS science, and modeling framework methods help derive accurate, spatially-driven assessments of agricultural processes and systems. This session will feature recent research methods and tools in monitoring and quantifying changes in global agricultural production practices, including sustainability and climate resilience, grower adaptation and mitigation efforts, land use/land cover conversions, urban farming, productivity/yield improvements, ecological monitoring, water use/consumption, and agriculture intensification.
