内容 研究概要:Crop maps were made using Landsat TM data of the Tokachi plains, Hokkaido, Japan, to investigate the relationship between soil organic matter content and planting ratio. Sugar content and root weight of sugar beets were also estimated using Landsat TM data obtained around harvesting time in 1986. The study site was classified into 5-subclasses. Sugar beets, potatoes and wheat were distinguished with 95 per cent accuracy. Sugar content and root yield also could be estimated with accuracy using this method. Planting ratio and yield of sugar beets varied according to soil organic matter content. These results suggest that Landsat TM data are useful for constructing crop maps and for estimating sugar content and root weight for sugar beets. Application of this approach may increase productivity of sugar beets by improving fertilization.
