Impact of COVID-19 on Harvest of Row Crops

The COVID-19 pandemic's far-reaching national and international impacts are well known and often hard to quantify. In our study, "Impact of COVID-19 on Harvest of Row Crops", funded by the European Space Agency ESA, we quantified when harvest occurred in 2020 and whether there were significant delays due to COVID-19. For this purpose, 200.000 fields of summer crops, winter cereals and winter rapeseed in 19 European countries were sampled and processed by our algorithm.

If you want to get a more in depth look at the results, the data can be found on ESA’s RACE (Rapid Action on Coronavirus and EO) platform, and VISTA’s yield prediction service portal YPSILON®. More details on the data access are here
