Monitoring Hybrid Performance - Commodity Crops

 

295

Situation:

Growers can use their TerrAvion NDVI imagery to monitor and evaluate seed, chemical, and fertilizer performances in their fields. In this example, the grower planted different corn hybrids in different portions of the field. The July 17th imagery shows that the strip planted toward the bottom is the most vigorous. The September 5th imagery shows that this trend continues to hold two months later. The NDVI imagery allows you to compare the performance of the hybrids in a way that is not possible without it. Often in-field scouting and natural color imagery gives little if any information on growth variation.

 

Action:

Use TerrAvion aerial imagery to evaluate seed variety and chemical performance. Remove the guesswork surrounding whether a particular variety outperformed another or a chemical application actually worked by monitoring the crop performance during the growing season.
