Abstract

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and several academic institutions partnered in transitioning selected NASA Earth science data products, knowledge, capacity, and systems into solutions to enhance a decision support system (DSS) of the Foreign Agricultural Services (FAS) Production Estimates and Crop Assessment Division (PECAD). This enhancement improves PECAD's decision support to the World Agricultural Outlook Board (WAOB) by providing improved monthly estimates of global production (based on crop yield and planted area) of selected agricultural commodities.
