Blocked Furrows - Plums

156

Situation:

Growers can use their TerrAvion thermal and NDVI imagery to identify irrigation system failures in their fields. In this example, blocked furrows are preventing parts of this plum orchard from receiving proper irrigation as can be seen as warm areas in the thermal imagery (right) and dry areas in the color imagery (left). If left uncorrected, these irrigation inefficiencies may result yield loss as well as increased disease or insect pressure.

Action:

Use thermal and NDVI imagery to catch irrigation failures and make corrections early enough to limit negative effects on yield.
