The Punjab Remote Sensing Centre (PRSC) and the Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO) have joined hands to develop sensing systems and use geospatial technology for management of natural resources so as to provide end-to-end solutions to issues such as water and food security.

An MoU in this regard was signed by CSIO Director RK Sinha and PRSC Director Brijendra Pateriya here today.

Babankumar Bansod from CSIO and RK Setia from PRSC, said the purpose of the MOU was to share resources in the development and validation of sensors for management of water and agricultural resources as well as the use of geospatial technology and spectroscopic techniques in the assessment and exploitation of natural resources.

This will lead to development of a decision-support system for helping farmers to increase yield and providing near real-time information about water quality by fusion of remote sensing technology, data analytics and sensor-based data aggregation, the scientists added.
