Kazakhstan launched a geo-portal for agricultural production entities
The information will be most in demand by farmers, the executive authority of the regions of Kazakhstan, experts involved in agricultural services.
Kazakhstan is a major wheat exporter. However, almost all agricultural areas are related to critical agriculture areas, in which high yields are received in good years (in terms of meteorological conditions), and significant reduction of crops may be in dry years .
Geoportal drought monitoring is very important for Kazakhstan, especially in a changing climate. Its implementation will contribute to the timely adoption of measures to mitigate the effects of climate change.
Research and development for monitoring of agricultural production, the forecast yield, moisture reserves evaluation, snow, drought, biohazard are held in “NTSKIT” JSC since the 1990s and have long-term database. The creation of the current project, a geo-portal was possible due to these observations and studies.
