Satellites offer a unique source of information for many agricultural applications. Among their attributes are: (1) regular, repetitive observation patterns; (2) large scale synoptic view of the earth surface from space; and (3) availability of a permanent information archive for establishing baseline data. In the following sections a brief outline of the weather parameters of agro-meteorological importance is provided, and a discussion about the usefulness of satellite observations in the retrieval of these parameters is given.
