This highly cost-efficient tool categorises land into agricultural and non-agricultural areas, and even classifies the agricultural area into annual, permanent and forage crops.

The satellite images are currently cost-free and the results are much better than the data currently gathered. The MAA tool could be particularly valuable for other regional governments, given their limited human and financial capital, and could evolve to being a flagship in the provision of agricultural information in centralised developing countries.
