Abstract: Some decades of observations have demonstrated the usefulness of spaceborne optical sensors in agriculture. Progress in spatial, spectral, and temporal resolutions brought in by recent satellites, like QuickBird and Ikonos, Spot-5 or Kompsat-2 is resulting beneficial to precision farming practices (Arkun et al., 2005). Imagery from space spots spatial and temporal anomalies of crop vigor and biomass and allows timely remedial treatments (Johnson, 2004). Likewise, the crop response to the adopted local agronomic strategies is revealed (Johnson et al., 2004), while preserving the capability of monitoring land use at regional level. In several developed countries, customized services, such as grid soil sampling, yield mapping, variable rate application of fertilizers and pesticides, are now available (Srinivasan, 2006). Especially in the last decade, some premium-wine producers approached space remote sensing technology with the main intent of enhancing the quality of their p...
