Crop calendar

A new collaboration between the Value chains website and the GEOGLAM Initiative at the University of Maryland brought agreements to provide an interactive crop calendar map for our target audience, especially farmers’ groups. GEOCLAM Initiative is designed to build on existing agricultural monitoring programs and initiatives at national, regional and global levels and to enhance and strengthen them through international networking, operationally focused research, and data/method sharing. The Initiative has started providing necessary crop calendar data and Web Map services (WMS) to the Value Chains Knowledge Clearinghouse Web portal. The Web portal customized the WMS for our users and developed an interactive crop calendar map filtered by crop, country and date.
