Water Stress / Irrigation Mapping

Irrigating, on a Need-to-Know Basis

Determining irrigation time, frequency, and duration is a critical factor in production agriculture since it directly impacts the health of crops. Our Micasense Altum thermal imagery provides powerful insights into water management, helping Farmers & Horticulturists determine the correct watering and identify leaks or clogs in the irrigation system by the difference in crop canopy and soil temperature. Canopy temperature is a valuable indicator of plant stress. Our Micasense Altum thermal imager allows farmers to periodically evaluate plant physiological status and detect subtle changes in canopy temperature that could be an indicator of water stress.
