Monitor crop performance throughout the growing season and discover costly yield threats with access to historical and in-season satellite imagery for each of your fields.
Farmers across the country are using their Crop Health Imagery to find and fix these problems:
Crop Health Imagery shows crop performance across a field at a single point in time. A divergent 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
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.
"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
"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
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
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.
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.
