This month’s agricultural data for Iraq
The state of vegetation are an important input into drought maps as they capture the state of health or stress of a crop. Four different indices/data sets are provided for the MENA region and the country data based on global data sets derived from remote sensing and generated through a combination of monitoring and modeling, which shows the condition of vegetation growth;
- Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI)
- Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI)
- Leaf Area Index (LAI)
- Fractional Photosynthetically Active Radiation (FPAR)
