Google Earth, the Group on Earth Observations, and the University of Sydney will develop the world’s first mobile app for real-time monitoring of rice fields globally.

The data generated by the app will be verified by field operators in India, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam to ensure its accuracy.
