Description: The research and its outcomes presented here focus on spatial
sampling of agricultural resources. The authors introduce sampling
designs and methods for producing accurate estimates of crop
production for harvests across different regions and countries.
With the help of real and simulated examples performed with
the open-source software R, readers will learn about the
different phases of spatial data collection. The agricultural data
analyzed in this book help policymakers and market stakeholders to
monitor the production of agricultural goods and its effects on
environment and food safety.
