ERMES: An Earth obseRvation Model based RicE information Service

ERMES ( aims to develop a prototype of downstream services based on the assimilation of EO and in situ data within crop model. Two services are foreseen: Regional Rice Service (RRS) customised for providing public authorities with an agro-monitoring system for crop mapping, yield estimating and risk forecast and Local Rice Service (LRS) for the private sector (farmers, agro-services) providing added value information on yield variability, risk alert and crop damage at farm scale.
