The Crop Monitor of the Group on Earth Observations Global Agricultural Monitoring (GEOGLAM) initiative provides a public good of open, timely, science-driven information on crop conditions in support of market transparency. A new article, to be published in the December edition of Global Food Security, provides a historical and institutional perspective on the creation and role of the GEOGLAM Crop Monitor in fulfilling the objectives of AMIS, including a description of its methods and protocols and, ultimately, how decision-makers are using its information.
