Pigweed Infestation - Commodity Crops

Situation:

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 high vigor areas in his field in the July 5th imagery, which in-field scouting revealed to be weed pressure. He used the imagery to guide a targeted herbicide application, only applying herbicide in the infested areas. The September 12th imagery shows the herbicide application was successful in killing the weeds, allowing for more uniform growth throughout the field.

Action:

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.
