Abstract: The EC's MARS Project was conceived to developoperational tools using satellite images in the field of information on crop production. The project was initiated in 1988 and is organised into three major fields. The first relates to the collection and improvement of crop yield and acreage statistics and the tamely forecasting of the agricultural production at the level of EU. The second field consists of providing scientific support to the Services of the Commission responsible for the implementation of the Common Agricultural Policy. Finally, support is also made available for the transfer and adaptation of MARS results to users outside the European Commission. The Institute for Remote Sensing Applications of the JRC is responsible for implimenting the programme.
