New AgroMetShell (newAMS) Feasibility study
Objectives To provide a unique shell in which to integrate all software tools to be used for crop monitoring and crop yield forecasting New_AMS will be a new concept for the FAO/NRC and one of the most important features will be to integrate in the shell a large number of tools and utilities developed over the years. New_AMS will be an environment where people who know the basics of programming will be able to develop their own tools.
Based principles Open Source software be distributed free charge and copyright ties be multi-platform
