Control with Remote Sensing

Beneficiary: Romanian Agency for Payment and
Intervention in Agriculture.

The primary activity within the CWRS project is verifying the farmer’s claims of the IACS (Integrated Administration and Control System) programme.

This involves classifying the lands using latest procedures based on Remote Sensing. A very precise classification of the vegetation, soil humidity can be made by using orto-photo and multispectral satellite imagery. The risk areas can also be determined with this technology.

Beginning with 2007, claims for 700,000 farmers or 4,000,000 agricultural parcels have been verified by means Remote Sensing, covering a total declared area of 5,300,000 sqkms, out of which 213,000 sqkms where actually controled.
