Surface soil water content plays an important role in driving the exchange of latent and sensible heat between the atmosphere and land surface through transpiration and evaporation processes, regulating key physiological processes affecting plants growth. Given the high impact of water scarcity on yields, and of irrigated agriculture on the overall withdrawal rate of freshwater, it is important to define models that help to improve water resources management for agricultural purposes, and to optimize rainfed crop yield.

IRECI is the optimal red edge index for evaluating the vegetation health status using #Sentinel2 imagery. IRECI is the most sensitive to the crop health status among the others indices. Green colour indicating high chlorophyll value ( #Rohtak , #Haryana ).
Kolhapur region is one of the most concentrated sugarcane growing areas in Maharashtra state because of favourable soil and agro-ecological condition of the region. Kolhapur's climate is a blend of coastal and inland elements common to Maharashtra. Sugarcane Farmland image capture(20 August) from Microwave Sentinel11) satelliteimagery data. The white colors patches seen on the banks of the river are sugarcane crops.
