What farmers are finding

Farmers across the country are using their Crop Health Imagery to find and fix these problems:

  • Nutrient Deficiency
  • Nitrogen Stress
  • Equipment Pass Overlaps/Gaps
  • Equipment Configuration Errors
  • Herbicide Injury
  • Clogged Nozzles
  • Insect Damage
  • Moisture Stress
  • Soil Compaction
  • Disease
  • And More!

Designed to help you spot trouble

Crop Health Imagery shows crop performance across a field at a single point in time. Our scale (red-yellow-green) provides a contrast of colors, which makes it easy for you to find and investigate areas that are showing poor growth.

"Our soils are subject to leaching and if we get a really wet June and we are losing nitrogen, we can see it in the imagery... We can determine if there is time to apply N to the corn in a timely manner."
Jon B., North Dakota

Use your imagery to respond to in-season yield threats

Mitch F. began using FarmLogs Crop Health Imagery to find any differences in his crop’s growth based on their location in his fields. After a week of heavy downpours, Mitch checked his Crop Health Imagery on one of his soybean fields, which helped him find where the rain had washed out some of his soybean plants. Mitch knew the field’s location made it a risk for washouts, but it had been difficult for him to determine where because the field had been planted with alfalfa in the previous year.

Mitch F.
"We always try to leave waterways in our fields since they’re in a valley, so they don't get washouts. Now that we have FarmLogs Crop Health Imagery, we can see which areas we should leave grass waterways in so that we don't get washouts in the future."
Mitch F., Minnesota

Or use it to improve next year's management practices

"My total loss last year on 1200 acres of corn may have been $16,000. Having last season's WDRVI [FarmLogs satellite] imagery is the only way I could have identified the problem. Now I can avoid the same problem every year in the future."
Clint D., Tennessee

How one Texas farmer identified a weed infestation using his imagery

Steven T. is a cotton and peanut farmer who operates a 2,000-acre farm in Lubbock County, Texas. After acquiring a new 700-acre block of land, he discovered a yield-threatening cocklebur infestation using FarmLogs Crop Health Imagery.

"The spot was where I don’t usually drive, and I couldn’t see it from the turn road. I walked down to that area of the field and found a huge patch of cockleburs that had sprouted on about 3 to 5 acres. They weren’t easy to spot from a distance, but they were big. So we got out there with a spray rig, sprayed it, and cleaned it up."
Steven T., Texas

FarmLogs Crop Health Imagery:

  • Can detect subtle plant stress at a 3 – 5 meter optical resolution, which is better than most combines' ability to measure yield differences.
  • Uses a cloud filter developed by Planet, our satellite imagery provider. The cloud filter cannot guarantee every image will be free of clouds, but true color imagery will allow you to confirm the presence of clouds in an image.
  • Is delivered to your account weekly. Your imagery will be delivered as early in the week as possible.
  • Arrives each season between May 15 and November 15 as your crops are growing.

Not your usual satellite imagery

We process our raw imagery into the Wide Dynamic Range Vegetation Index (WDRVI), which utilizes both the red and near-infrared color bands, and allows you to see growth that you can’t spot with the naked eye.

True Color comparison

With Field Data Explorer, easily compare your WDRVI image to a true color image for each field. True color imagery allows you to view your field as it would be seen by the naked eye, so you can have a more comprehensive understanding of your images and quickly identify potential cloud cover.

Crop Health Imagery is included in FarmLogs Premium

Along with everything in FarmLogs Essentials and Standard!
