Building a Rice Decision Support System to Support Global Food Security and Commodity Markets, Phase I Project

Project Introduction

Rice is an important crop globally that influences food security and the Earth system. Rice is the predominant food staple in many regions with approximately 700 million tons of production annually across the globe. Rice is sensitive to a variety of drivers that can adversely impact production and efficiency including weather variability and inter-seasonal volatility, water resources, and risk management decisions (e.g., pests). Futures are a tool used to manage or hedge risk, reduce volatility,...

Anticipated Benefits

Benefits to NASA funded missions

This effort will support futures market and NASA early warning systems (e.g., FEWSnet), the GEO-GLAM program, index insurance programs, and climate change science. Anticipated Direct Results: ? Platform for supporting rice futures markets ? Operational, near real-time rice mapping products ? Operational, near real-time rice yield forecasts with quantified uncertainties ? Platform for supporting rice index insurance markets ? Agricultural monitoring to support food security and risk management
