Mapping in-field spatial maize yield variability in Tanzania using very fine spatial resolution imag

Having been brought up in a rural village in Kenya, our source of livelihoods has been mainly small-scale crop farming. The question of where and why the yield differs in our crop field influenced my career choice of studying GIS and remote sensing. Under the support and guidance of the STARS project team, I was able to carry out a field study in Kilosa district, Tanzania. The study was a proof-of-concept to determine the extent to which very fine spatial resolution remote sensing imagery from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and satellites could be used to assess field-level maize yield variability. Most of the Sub-Saharan Africa countries have crop fields characterized by small area, fuzzy

Research Presentation in Kumasi

Aristotle Boaitey presented his research findings on the topic "Quantifying Spatial indicators of Ecological Quality in a Cocoa Landscape" to scientists, researchers and stakeholders. The study was carried out in Goaso Forest District in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana. The seminar was organized by Tropenbos International - Ghana in their Conference Room at Fumesua, Ashanti onFriday April 1, 2016. You can watch a recorded version of the presentation below
