Inefficient Flood Irrigation - Alfalfa




Growers can use their TerrAvion thermal and NDVI imagery to identify irrigation system failures in their fields. In this example, inefficient flood irrigation flow left the south part of this field water-stressed. The imagery reveals the problem on August 3rd, early enough to make an effective correction. The grower, however, missed the signs and the inefficient irrigation flow compromised yield in the 10-acre that was water-stressed area as can be seen in the September 8th imagery.


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