GreenReport Reflects Decreased Greenness Across Heart of Corn Belt

June 18, 2013 06:46 AM

The Kansas Applied Remote Sensing (KARS) GreenReport Greenness map, that compares vegetative difference to the average for this time of year, reflects decreased greenness across the central Corn Belt.


The vegetative condition map reflects mostly poor vegetative health from Illinois westward, with mostly fair conditions in Indiana and Ohio.


Juli says: I've been keeping an eye on these maps and haven been waiting for a turnaround in the greenness... thinking that as the crop emerged ratings would improve. We'll, it's the middle of June and it's time to share these maps, which reflect a very tough start to the growing season across the Corn Belt.
