Productivity Maps are generated based on NDVI maps from past crop seasons, processed by applying geostatistical techniques and tools.

This objective and automated analysis can compare the production of different zones in the fields and their variability in a single map, which presents productivity levels represented in different colors, blue being the most productive and yellow the lowest.

This is an essential information layer that allows to direct sampling, define management zones, and make site specific management decisions, to optimize the use of crop inputs and improve yields.

Input data

Process

  • After requesting PF Cycle, the Productivity map is automatically tasked (no need to request it)
  • GeoAgro Services staff selects NDVI maps with crop activity, and processes them to produce the

productivity map, by field.

  • Productivity Maps are delivered through 360.

Output

Productivity Maps by field are delivered through farm 360. Next step is to review them with farmer to:

  • Validate how it correlates with productive zones in the field
  • Understand what imagery dates were used to produce the maps and relate with the field/date context.


Note Note:
  1. You can use the query attributes tool to view the date of the source image, in the "Description" attribute.
  2. Also, you can download your productivity map to your desktop to import it to GeoAgro GIS, Google Earth or any GIS software of your choice
