Crops and Vegetation

These Datasets cover data on crop potential, crop statistics, monitoring, phenology, crop calendar and crop masks. Moreover, data includes Agricultural Stress Index System, and Transboundary Plant Pests and Diseases:

  • Crop Production Statistics (FAOSTAT): provides free access to food and agriculture data for over 245 countries and territories and covers all FAO regional groupings from 1961 to the most recent year available.
  • Agricultural Stress Index System (ASIS): is a global agricultural drought monitoring system developed and operated by FAO which enables to monitor agricultural areas affected by dry spells, or severe drought in extreme cases, using satellite data.
  • Crop Calendar: aims to increase seed security by improving seed related interventions and facilitating seed production, distribution and trade through a better management and access to seed-related information by all actors, including emergency relief projects, Ministries of Agriculture, seed industry development projects.
  • Climate Info Tool: is an interactive tool to query a spatial dataset containing long-term mean monthly climate data. The dataset covers the global land surface at a 10 minute spatial resolution for the period 1961-1990. The tool displays the latitude, longitude and elevation of the chosen location, and several climate variables per month (average over the period 1961-1990) related to: precipitation, temperature, relative humidity, sunshine, wind speed, reference evapotranspiration
