Harvest (full name: the NASA Harvest Consortium) is a new, multidisciplinary program commissioned by NASA and led by the University of Maryland to enhance the use of satellite data in decision making related to food security and agriculture, both in the US and abroad.
Think satellites, agriculture, US + global, food security, better information, better decisions... better for society.
We were previously known as the NASA Earth Observations for Food Security and Agriculture Consortium (http://www.eofsac.org) but are re-branding. See our rebranding summary below:
When you’re a farmer, and you use objective, accurate, and actionable information to sow your seeds, your yield is greater. Your crop is stronger. Your harvest is more bountiful.
EOFSAC is now Harvest, because we’re focused on outcomes—for decision makers, for the food supply, for the world in which we live. We are advancing the state of the science and the adoption of Earth observations by those working in food security and agriculture because we know that reaping benefits tomorrow begins with taking action today.
Our name represents our renewed commitment to the mission we have pursued from the beginning: to improve food security and agriculture decision-making in the US and around the globe. What you’re calling us has changed—who we are remains the same.
