    The Crop Information Portal is a WEB, knowledge base and data dissemination platform for crop production statistics and crop conditions in Pakistan. It has the role of managing and disseminating spatial (satellite images and thematic layers) and non-spatial (crop, climatic, agronomic, hydrologic and economic) data that the provincial Crop Reporting Services and other national or sub-national institutions generate or collect on crop monitoring. The Portal provides users with an easy-to-use system that allows timely access to the large amount of crop information, agro-meteorological data and satellite images, perform analysis, and generate statistics in various formats.

    A Digital Global Map of Irrigation Areas - An update for Asia (2005)

    The Land and Water Development Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany, are cooperating in the development of a global irrigation-mapping facility. This report describes an update of the Digital Global Map of Irrigated Areas for the continent of Asia. For this update, an inventory of subnational irrigation statistics for the continent was compiled. The reference year for the statistics is 2000. Adding up the irrigated areas per country as documented in the report gives a total of 188.5 million ha for the entire continent. The total number of subnational units used in the inventory is 4 428. In order to distribute the irrigation statistics per subnational unit, digital spatial data layers and printed maps were used. Irrigation maps were derived from project reports, irrigation subsector studies, and books related to irrigation and drainage. These maps were digitized and compared with satellite images of many regions. In areas without spatial information on irrigated areas, additional information was used to locate areas where irrigation is likely, such as land-cover and land-use maps that indicate agricultural areas or areas with crops that are usually grown under irrigation.

    Afghanistan Soil Information System (Afsis) - TCP/AFG/3601 2019
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Over 80 percent of Afghanistan’s population lives in ruralareas, where the main income comes from agriculturalproduction. On-farm management practices are oftenhighly extensive, putting the country’s soils under intensepressure and causing various types of degradation.Available data on Afghanistan’s soils are limited andearlier soil surveys have lacked a systematic approachand standardized methods. Sustainable soil managementrequires systematic soil data collection through fieldsurveys and the continuous monitoring of soil propertiesorganized into an appropriate data base and soilinformation system (SIS). The creation of such a system,providing accurate and up-to-date soil information, is thusa high priority, as it will enable sustainable landmanagement at farm level and assist in the efficientmonitoring of land degradation processes.Once in place, the Afghanistan Soil Information System(AfSIS) will contain data and information relating tothe spatial variability of soil types and soil propertiesintegrated with such natural co-variables as climate,vegetation, geology, relief conditions, hydrology andhydrography. It can be continuously upgraded andextended with new information from the field andwill serve as a reference centre for storing all valuablesoil data.The aim of the project was to identify, collect, evaluate,synchronize and systematize existing soil and non-soildata into a geodatabase integrating the various data sets.The data stored will enable the application of digital soilmapping (DSM) tools and models for the prediction ofspatial distribution of soil properties, the identificationof possible threats and pressures, risk assessment andthe implementation of measures to mitigate soildegradation processes. The project would also strengthenthe technical capacities of the country’s soil sciencecommunity in the conduct of systematic and standardizedfield and laboratory soil properties analyses.
