I believe that most participants at this Easter School will return to home base with three abiding impressions of what we have heard and seen. First, we have been left in no doubt that techniques of remote sensing are continuing to develop very rapidly, particularly in the interpretation of microwave signals and in the storage and processing of data. Second, platforni speakers, along with all thc enthusiasts who displayed posters, have convinced us that there are many ways in which remote sensing could, in principle, be deployed to increase the world's food supplies. Third, speakers from the floor have repeatedly pointed out that the contribution which remote sensing has so far made to agriculture lags far behind the perceived potential. In attempting to sum up conclusions from this meeting, I shall be specially concerned with the constraints which prevent that potential from being realised.
