The goal of this joint Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) and the CSA AO is to combine our need to develop EO specialists, and particularly in RADAR, capable to fulfill the increasing needs for qualified personnel (HQP) while pursuing the knowledge enhancement on RADAR, and AAFC interest to seek answers on some issues regarding the use of RADAR in agriculture applications. This AO is being offered to address the perceived gap or future need for RADARSAT agriculture applications. Applications related to crop inventory, tillage, soil moisture, land cover / land use to sustain and manage effectively our agricultural lands and harvests. Looking ahead to the RADARSAT Constellation Mission (RCM), with its average daily global re-look capability and 4-day exact revisit, even greater accuracy will be possible. There is therefore a need to focus on the development of the full potential of these satellite systems in this area, and to ensure that there is a cadre of Highly Qualified People (HQP) entering the workforce with the requisite skills.
