Organic agriculture, while producing healthy food and contributing to protect the environment, needs to be certified in order to meet the consumers confidence. The objective of this study was to investigate how earth observation techniques could enhance the crop certification process and in particular the possibility to discriminate organic and conventional fields. These different crop management methods results in crop biophysical differences which are supposed to be observable by earth observation techniques. A set of satellites with varying spatial and spectral resolution was used to compute discriminant indicators. Under the best conditions the results show a complete discrimination between organic and conventional crops. [less ▲]

The spectral information contained in hyperspectral data allows for a more detailed crop and soil parameter retrieval, in turn making possible to derive precise information about plant health (nutrient deficiencies, water stress, crop diseases) but also about soil status (from soil moisture to humus content). Thus, smart farming, that is farming practice that wants to account for the whole ecosystem on the field and react precisely to any challenges, can be supported by hyperspectral data with exactly the spatial information it needs.
