Clogged Pivot Sprinkler

157

Situation:

Growers can use their TerrAvion thermal and NDVI imagery to identify irrigation system failures. In this example, the June 28 imagery reveals a clogged sprinkler. Importantly, the imagery allowed the grower to identify a sprinkler failure early on and make correct the problem in time. The July 20 imagery shows that the problem has been addressed and the crop has recovered in the previously water-starved area.

Action:

Use thermal and NDVI imagery to catch irrigation failures and replace clogged sprinklers early enough to limit yield losses.
