Output Examples

 Biomass production (BM) in a cereal field

Second week of June: normal and fairly even biomass production (BM).

 Two weeks later: pattern deviation in biomass production.

Third week of July: biomass production lagging behind with 30%.

This monitoring product will show you patterns of outputs for different land use classes. It is up to you to interpret this data.  E.g. in the cereal field above, the farmer found out that his cereals were affected by mildew, which affected his biomass production.

Weeds

The highest biomass production within a field is usually caused by weed growth.

Slightly lower biomass production indicates a healthy growing crop.

Differences within a field

High biomass production shows an abundantly growing crop, including weeds.

Extremely low biomass production shows bare land.


Irrigation systems can be clearly distinguished in satellite images. The path of the boom, where no crops are growing, corresponds to very low to zero biomass production.

Areas affected by drought have a medium to low biomass production.
