Crop Health Indices

Crop Health Indices These products represent crop health indices derived from the Versatile Soil Moisture Budget (VSMB) model using crop specific coefficients and station based precipitation and temperature measurements to simulate crop growth. The VSMB model simulates soil moisture dynamics and water stress conditions based on water availability in the soil profile and simulated evapotranspiration during the crop growing season. Crop phenological stages, which are related to crop water use, are determined by a biometeorlogical time scale model (Robertson, 1968) for cool season crops (wheat, barley etc.) and a Crop Heat Unit (Brown and Bootsma, 1993) algorithm for warm season crops (corn and soybean etc.). 2021-11-15 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada agri-geomatics-agrog@agr.gc.ca AgricultureFarmlandsAgriculture Crop Health IndicesWMS https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/services/imageservices/crop_health_indices/ImageServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS Crop Health IndicesESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/crop_health_indices/ImageServer Crop Health IndicesESRI REST https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/rest/services/imageservices/crop_health_indices/ImageServer Data Product Specification (English)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/cropHealthIndices/en/ISO_19131_Crop_Health_Indices_-_Data_Product_specification.pdf Data Product Specification (French)PDF https://agriculture.canada.ca/atlas/supportdocument_documentdesupport/cropHealthIndices/fr/Indices_de%20sant%c3%a9_des_cultures_SPC.pdf
