The initiative to develop the Global Strategy to improve agricultural and rural statistics (GSARS) came as a response to address developing countries’ lack of capacity to provide reliable statistical data on food and agriculture and to provide a blueprint for long-term sustainable agricultural statistical systems.

The Resource Centre on the GSARS website has a host of useful reports and handbooks outlining the use of Remote Sensing within the agricultural industry.
