Italy: Vegetation health

This page shows the analysis of the vegetation health (VHI index) related to agricultural crops. This analysis enables us to identify potential critical Issues and investigate the consequent effects on production yields.

The first graph shows the current condition of crops in the various regions of the selected country for all the products analyzed.

In the second section of the page it is possible to compare the historical trend of the VHI index in all the Regions for the selected product.

The colors represent values ​​of the VHI index related to crop health, and are measured on a scale from 0 to 100. Colors from orange to red highlight negative conditions in crop health.




CORN - Historical trend by Region

The following charts show the historical trend of the health conditions (VHI index) of Corn crops in the different Regions. The purple dotted line represents the threshold below which the vegetation is in a situation of significant stress, which can negatively affect crop yields. The colored areas indicate the periods when the level of the VHI index went under such stress conditions, going from orange (less intense stress) to dark red (more intense stress).
