Abstract: The workshop was held from the 30th of November until the 1st of December in Stresa (Italy) jointly organized by the Joint Research Centre, Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen, Agriculture Unit, MARS STAT action and the ISPRS working group VIII/10. Almost 80 participants from 25 countries came together under the workshop topic ¿remote sensing support to crop yield forecast and area estimates¿ to review the main use of remote sensing information for yield forecast and area estimates at national or regional level. The two days workshop shared national, GEOLAND FP 6 project and JRC experiences in the use of satellite data in crop monitoring. Reviewing the use of remote sensing for crop yield forecast, research in progress was presented as well as operational systems integrating remote sensing information for the yield forecasting using various sensors and approaches. The state of the art was presented for the estimation of crop area estimates from remote sensing as well as an assessment of remote sensing capabilities to achieve area estimates.
