Improving the rice and oil palm production systems in Colombia by creating and providing better knowledge and decision support services to its stakeholders.

EcoProMIS, the Ecological Productivity Management Information System Colombian rice and oil palm farmers need to improve productivity and stabilise incomes to allow them to compete globally whilst responding to climate change and producing responsibly. The project uses satellite earth observation combined with environmental and crop data to research the impact of crop and ecosystem management on biodiversity, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and productivity.

Knowledge services

Accurate, affordable and timely knowledge enables growers to make better decisions and optimise production, while research institutes can develop better crop management systems and provide faster and better recommendations to growers.

Decision support

Our decision support modules provide comprehensive solutions to deal effectively with production and demand related challenges in agricultural production systems. These include; Climate change, soil erosion, fertilizer and pesticide pollution, low productivity and competitiveness, greenhouse gasses, income stability, and food security.
