Luleka is currently doing an MSc with CSAG Exploring the potential of using remote sensing data to model agricultural systems in data-limited areas. This research explores the potential of combining remote sensing data with crop models in data-limited areas. This because the use of crop models, particularly in remote and rural areas, is often limited by the lack of reliable field input data. As such, increasing efforts are being made globally to assimilate remotely sensed data into crop models to improve their overall performance and use. Nevertheless, very few such studies have been conducted in South Africa. Therefore, this study assesses how well the model assimilated with remotely sensed data compares with a crop model calibrated with actual ground data. With an intention to improve the capacity and use of crop models in data-limited areas.
