The STARS Project

Commencing on June 1st 2014, STARS was established to investigate ways in which some of these challenges can be addressed. The Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente in the Netherlands is leading a consortium of some of the world’s leading minds on agricultural remote sensing. The consortium will test a number of hypotheses about the feasibility of remote sensing data and assess which types of information are most beneficial over a project period of 26 months.

The consortium includes an international group of research institutes, including: 

  • the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia;
  • the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Mali and Nigeria;
  • the University of Maryland, USA, in Tanzania and Uganda;
  • the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) in Bangladesh and Mexico.
