Drainage Failure - Commodity Crops




Growers can use TerrAvion imagery to identify irrigation or drainage system failures in their fields. TerrAvion imagery enhances growers’ ability to identify irrigation and drainage issues, which are often discernible based upon geospatial patterns that are difficult, if not impossible to ascertain, from the ground-level. In this example, poor tile line performance resulted in inadequate drainage in the western third of the field, which resulted in nutrient losses and a nitrogen deficiency later in the season.


Use thermal and NDVI imagery to catch irrigation and drainage issues and make corrections early enough to limit yield losses.
