Elevation and Drainage

Utilise elevation maps to manage risks

  • Identify low lying areas that are susceptible to frost and waterlogging risk
  • Add an extra data layer in crop yield analysis to see how drainage issues impact crop yields
  • Develop drainage models that can be used to alter water flows in paddocks, leading to improved yield outcomes

How much does this cost?

Costs of yield data, remote sensing and elevation data processing can be as little as a dollar per hectare, depending on area. This data can assist in strategic farm planning, farm performance, evaluation of current on-farm practices, and improvement of struggling areas on the farm. Combining a few informative layers of seasonal information can result in better decisions in the farming system.

What is NDVI?

Simply put, NDVI is a measure of green-ness. Normalised differential vegetation index (NDVI) is calculated by using a formula, looking at the reflectance of visible red light and near infrared light on green areas. Chorophyll in plant leaves has high absorbance of visible light, while leaf cells reflect near infrared light. If there is variability in the health of the crop, assessing the NDVI across a farm or paddock (of the same species and variety) can lead to better use of top up nitrogen applications, especially in a VR situation.
