Preciel Project (2014 - 2020)


Summary of the project

" Efficiency of cropping systems: production / irrigation "


PRECIEL (2015-2020) studies the efficiency of crops in order to create a service to help manage irrigation and estimate crop yields on a large scale.

The work is based on a research work (financing of a thesis) validated by
2 publications of international rank as well as several conferences.

The innovation comes from the use of a new type of satellite images: the
Sentinel-1 Radar images which make possible the follow-up of agricultural surfaces without meteorological constraint (cloudiness, etc...).

A demonstration tool has been set up in 2019 confirming the good performance of the estimates.
