SKYFLD Biomass maps are based on NDVI imagery. Biomass maps give an overview of crop health and a visual indication of heterogeneity in the field and across your farm. With SKYFLD you get a three year biomass history and a new image every 3-12 days as standard. As a result you are always aware of the status of your crops, and can prioritise areas for further investigation or scouting.
In addition to being a great indicator of crop health, SKYFLD biomass maps can be used as a base for variable rate application cards in conjunction with Yield & soil Maps uploaded by the user.
- Overview of plant health & variation
- Definition of different management zones
- Variation of inputs according to plant needs
- 5 x 5 m resolution
- 3-year History as standard
SKYFLD biomass maps are derived from Sentinel ESA satellite imagery at a resolution of 5x 5 m every 3 - 12 days. Using a proprietary algorithm, SKYFLD provides you with images of your field's biomass throughout the season. Based on NDVI, the maps show a combination of chlorophyll content, plant moisture, nitrogen content, and GAI.

3. New maps added regularly
From the biomass map you can read the vitality, i.e. the health, of your plants. This is not only useful for monitoring the growth process, but also for evaluating the current condition and as an indicator to predict harvest.
Also observe how the biomass changes in different parts of your field. From this you can identify different zones and that indicate soil quality or water holding capacity.
0% - 25% snow, dead plants, water spots.
25% - 33% plants, adapted stand management
33 % - 100 % Healthy to very healthy plants
In order to make future decisions, it is often helpful to look at the past. Utilise the SKYFLD Biomass map history to look back three years of biomass maps as standard.
