We also use the NDVI index to restore the crop yield for a field. Using this information, we create maps
for the differential application of phosphate and potassium fertilizers.
At the end of the season, the NDVI index helps to determine which fields are ready for harvesting — the lower the index, the closer the part of the field is to the ripening stage. The optimal index value, in this case, would be 0.3−0.35. We also assume that NDVI index can help to determine the rate of pre-harvest herbicides for a part of a field.
To test our hypothesis, we are conducting field experiments throughout 2019. At no cost, we will be analyzing fields and developing task files for the differentiated application of seeds and pesticides. Every farmer with the necessary agricultural equipment is welcome to participate in our trial! Simply fill out this Google form
