Information

The objectives of this webinar are to introduce Feed the Future's new agrometeorological context indicators (rainfall, greenness, and temperature), discuss how the new indicators are calculated, and explain how you can use them to interpret agricultural measures like yield or input use.

Kiersten Johnson from USAID/BFS MEL Division will be joined by guest presenters Ritvik Sahajpal and Brian Barker from the University of Maryland-led NASA Harvest program.

We will discuss the following Feed the Future indicators:

  • FTF Context-12: Average Standard Precipitation Index score during the main growing season [ZOI-level]
  • FTF Context-13: Average deviation from 10-year average NDVI during the main growing season [ZOI-level]
  • FTF Context-14: Total number of heat stress days above 30°C during the main growing season [ZOI-level]

Please join us to get all of your questions answered about these indicators!
