Abstract

This paper aims at assessing the present state of satellite remote sensing assessment of crop yields in the Sahel in the supprot of economic planing as well as natural resource management at a national level. Experiences from Senegal have shown that a linear relation can be established between millet grain yield collected in the field and vegetation index data, NDVI, integrated during the period where the millet grains are produced. Furthermore, a second objective is to highlight the advantages associated with remote sensing crop yield monitoring
