Agricultural remote sensing fieldwork in Tanzania February 2023

March 15, 2023

As part of EU-funded project UPSCALE our PhD researcher Adomas Liepa organised a data collection campaign to Mwanza, Tanzania. Working together with the local agricultural researchers from Tanzanian Agricultural Research Institute (TARI) valuable insights into farming practices, local farming tendencies and growing season projections were evaluated. During the fieldwork, coordinates, landcover data and farmer insights were collected. This will be used for high-resolution land cover map generation and in the broader context, to combine farmer perspective, climate and remote sensing data in tackling future agricultural challenges of East Africa.
