Geo-informatics in Agriculture Studies-Agronomy [Certification Training Program]

This training program integrates agronomy with geo-informatics, emphasizing ArcGIS and ERDAS IMAGINE. Participants learn GIS and RS techniques for crop characterization, soil mapping, land evaluation, and damage assessment through a combination of online and offline sessions.

After completion of the training you'll be:


  • Characterization of crops using Remote Sensing tools

  • Concepts of soil mapping through remote sensing

Online mode available with customized class timings

Doubt clearing sessions with personalized assistance

Trainers with 5+ years of hands-on experience in various aspects of Geospatial Technology

Duration- 60 Days/120Hrs.

Monday-Friday (2Hrs./Day)

Training Overview

Agronomy is a branch of agriculture that deals with soil and crop. Soil varies in space and is responsible for variation in the growth and yield of crops on the field. This variation in the yields of crops planted and monitored on the same parcel of land under the same environmental conditions has been a great concern to farmers.

  • Characterization of crops using Remote Sensing tools

  • The concepts of soil mapping through remote sensing

  • The evaluation of land capability for better land use planning

  • The methods to assess damage to crop by floods, droughts, pests using remote sensing techniques

  • Characterization of forest entities for analysis of deforestation, forest fire damages


  • Introduction Agronomy, an aspect of agriculture
