White Mold

318

Situation:

Growers can use their TerrAvion NDVI imagery to help identify disease outbreaks in their fields. In this example, the grower noticed a decline in vigor in portions of his soybean field, which turned out to be a white mold infestation. The image on the right shows white mold on the roots of soybeans in the infected zones. Grower used the measurement tool to help quantify the scope of the problem.

Action:

Use TerrAvion aerial imagery to identify and quantify disease problems. Having quantified the scope of White Mold in this field, the grower is able to consult with his agronomist to make an informed decision for the following season, which may involve planting a different crop, devising a different planting plan (e.g., wider rows or planting a resistant seed variety), or making chemical treatments.
