Identifying Weed Pressure - Orchards




Growers can use TerrAvion imagery to identify weed issues in their fields, make targeted herbicide applications, and evaluate the effectiveness of herbicide treatments. In this example, the grower noticed an area of high vigor in his orchard. When scouting the orchard, the growing found heavy weed pressure in the areas of high vigor. The weeds were sapping water and nutrients from the trees, leaving them stressed.


Use TerrAvion imagery to identify suspicious high vigor zones in early-season imagery, which may correspond to weed pressure. Use imagery to guide targeted herbicide applications and evaluate treatment effectiveness.
