Drought Monitoring and Evaluation

Agricultural Engineers in Plantation

Drought is a recurring natural phenomenon, representing an imbalance in the elements of the atmosphere unless people may not feel it has adverse effects on plant production. However, it can cause significant damage to the crop, such as low productivity, slow growth, or it may reach the failure of crop production. The drought problem’s consequences may be sudden, whereas the difference in temperature or relative humidity in a certain way during the critical agricultural season is difficult for humans to feel or pay attention to.

Monitoring and evaluating drought is carried out in many countries worldwide using drought indicators, and the standard precipitation index is the most used indicator. It is the official indicator recommended by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

Smart Green offers:


  1. Drought assessment by both indicators and the analysis is done using meteorological data and satellite data. 
  2. Compare drought patterns with productivity data using remote sensing data of very high accuracy, allowing assessment at the farm level.
  3. Analyze the data to infer the frequency of drought, drought severity, duration, and extent of occurrence. Moreover, statistical analyzes allow determining the size to which agricultural land is likely to be exposed to different degrees and periods of drought in the future. 
  4. Develop a strategy to reduce the risk of deficiency and reduce the possibility of agricultural crop failure by relying on the latest scientific research published in this field.

Smart Green provides the latest technology, data analysis methods, and scientific research products to protect your investment and enhance food security worldwide from the effects of climate change, which will cause an increase in droughts and agricultural problems in the future.
