Russia - Tula

Specific Project Objectives & Deliverables

We have conducted field visits one time per month from April 2016 up to August 2016.
It has been found that weeds on many fields affect the NDVI and LAI, calculated based on Landsat and MODIS data (Fig.6). The effect of weeds differs from field to field due to crop type and crop development status.
