As part of project funded by the RCUK-CIAT Newton-Caldas Fund Sustainable Tropical Agricultural Systems Programme, researchers from CIAT, University of Glasgow, University of Bristol, University of Antioquia, and the University of Cauca spent four days at Patía in Cauca developing co-designed work-flows for acquiring, processing and analysis of multi-dimensional remote sensing data at five smallholder farms to improve monitoring and prediction of forage growth and quality metrics with the aim of developing a framework for a forage management decision support system. As part of this study, methodologies for engagement with smallholders was also investigated with male and female smallholder farmers to determine attitudes to and potential barriers of incorporation of such technologies and their outputs into practice.
