Crop Health Imagery

Crop Health Imagery, powered by PurePixel™ technology, provides reliable, cloud-free, calibrated satellite images to farmers and their trusted advisors. PurePixel leverages a proprietary algorithm to analyze multiple sensor inputs to produce calibrated vegetative index maps throughout the growing season. This unique calibration allows farmers to compare crop health at each growing stage for more targeted crop scouting. This enables smart in-season application decisions, helping farmers maximize yields and drive profits.

Crop Health Imagery is included with Farmer Pro or Farmer Pro Plus licenses and available worldwide. Subscribe today and receive four types of imagery for each field: vegetative index-calibrated, vegetative index-classified, natural color and infrared color. Already a Farmer Pro or Farmer Pro Plus customer?

Quick Facts

  • Receive cloud-free, 10m resolution satellite imagery
  • Leverages Landsat 8, Sentinel 2A and Sentinel 2B satellites, providing on average 3-5 cloud-free images per month
  • Access imagery throughout the growing season once the add-on module is activated and a field boundary and crop is assigned to the field

What Troubles Your Fields?

The first step is understanding where the problems exist within your fields. With Crop Health Imagery, farmers receive timely imagery that can help them address the following problems:

  • Nutrient deficiency
  • Insect infestation
  • Field application overlaps/gaps
  • Soil compaction
  • Disease
  • Over-application of chemicals
  • And more!

Imagery Calibration Done Right

Many imagery providers fail to address the need to compare one growth stage to the next using a calibrated scale. Trimble’s offering is unique because Crop Health Imagery is powered by PurePixel, which leverages a proprietary algorithm that can analyze multiple sensor inputs to produce calibrated vegetative index maps. This means you’ll have reliable imagery throughout the growing season using the same scale, helping you find issues quicker.

“I use Crop Health Imagery to fine tune our fertilizer program. I raise mostly hard red spring wheat and tools like this can make a difference in our protein content which impacts the bottom line. I like how you can look at the crop health early in the growing season or look back at prior years to see trends of crop health. It is easy to use and helps me make informed decision when creating my own variable rate application maps.”

Pinpoint the Problem Spots

Crop Health Imagery provides the ‘early warning’ system to see trouble before it costs you money. Seeing your crop performance across the entire field for that single point in time can help you detect issues before they escalate into bigger problems. Crop Health Imagery is your partner to maximize profit in each area of your field.

Use Your Imagery for Targeted Scouting

All imagery can be viewed from the Trimble Ag Mobile app to help target specific locations for scouting. Using the app, navigate to troubled areas and enter scouting information such as pest types and photos. Data uploads to your Trimble account can be easily shared with a trusted advisor, resulting in timely recommendations.
