Clogged Pivot Sprinkler - Commodity Crops

 

157

Situation:

Growers can use their TerrAvion thermal and NDVI imagery to identify irrigation system failures. In this example, the June 28th imagery reveals a clogged sprinkler which allowed the grower to identify a sprinkler failure early on, and correct the problem in time. The July 20th 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.
