Haryana produces 12 percent of national wheat production and 3 percent of national rice production and hence less soil moisture over the state may be a great concern for farmers of the state. The image shows the soil moisture map for Haryana state as on 05-Mar-2018.

The map is prepared by merging data from multiple satellites using the vikleda algorithm.

Some of the applications where soil moisture is useful are:

  • Optimal irrigation in farms
  • Identify areas being over-irrigated
  • Improved flood risk estimation
  • Monitor agricultural drought in near real time
  • Improved weather forecast
  • Analyse the impact of an irrigation project
  • Identify the irrigated area by an irrigation source
  • Automatic billing of farm based on the actual irrigation
  • Estimation of actual evapotranspiration taking place
  • Estimation of area getting degraded
