Yield Prediction and Estimation from Earth Observation



Crop yield forecasting is a vital tool to support stakeholders and decision-makers in preparing for potential yield deficiencies. Most crop yield forecasts so far have been implemented on a regional to national scale. Field-scale forecasts can add vital information for farmers and insurers but still have much potential to improve. Especially the increasing availability of high-resolution climate data from sources such as Copernicus Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3 data, and Proba-V can significantly improve such forecasts.


Ensure food security in a changing climate.


Minimizing the impact of extreme events and changing climate on agricultural production through the use of monitoring and forecasting of crop growth and yield for more informed decision making.


YIPEEO aims to improve field-scale crop yield forecasts through the usage of high-resolution remote sensing data and cutting edge scientific methods.

Project objectives

  • Providing inputs for the development of the next generation of “fit for purpose” observation systems for agricultural monitoring
  • Setting the bases for enhanced cooperation between ESA and EC, working towards a Common Science Agenda addressing the grand agriculture-related challenges
  • A proper Science-Society interface & dialogue resulting in a transfer of science & technology results into practical solutions for farmers and other food system actors
  • Establishing a sound scientific basis for developing a Digital Twin of crop areas and agricultural activities
