There are many services offered through the application of remote sensing in the agricultural sector. Examples include crop yield estimation and forecasting, assessment of crop condition or crop damage, identification of pests and disease infestation and drought monitoring.

As such the NRSC is in the process of coming up with crop yield estimation model for Zambia. This model will be very useful for forecasting the performance of crops in a farming season so as to provide early-warning services to the nation whenever necessary.
