Challenge ID:

HCP-4205

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Remediation monitoring related to agriculture impacts.

Theme:

ON 4.2: Environmental monitoring - Continuous monitoring of changes throughout the lifecycle

Consortium Lead:

RPS Group

Interviewed Company:

RPS Group

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

To perform crop type and damage assessment there has to be an understanding of what is being planted to ensure correct/fair payment. For example, is the damage assessment actually worse than expected in terms of rutting of land and destruction of  crops? It is difficult to assess the recovery period - is it correct or realistic? Is the compensation too high? Baseline data are required to support decisions. There is leverage in some countries (e.g. Kenya) but there are additional issues in dealing with commercial and subsistence farming. Reglulated in Canada and Poland per square metre per crop and by condition.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Cost to determine correct/fair compensation and potentially incorrect assessment of impact and recovery period.

Thematic information requirements:

Land cover

Land use

Terrain information

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Assume a certain recovery period.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Able to assess the overview of damage from an areal and depth perspective.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Assess established monitoring methods for crop type delineation and vegetation stress.
