TellusLabs’ crop forecast models have gotten a lot of attention over the past few years, but they’re only a part of our mission to build a living map of the world’s food supply.


As proud part-citizens of Digitopolis, we think that people can't fully understand things until they can measure them. That’s why we’re producing clean, consistent metrics that score the plant health of crops all around the world.


Last week, TellusLabs started processing daily global imagery so that it could provide FOUR plant health indices (TL CHI, EVI2, NDWI and NDVI) for every country around the globe. In months, we’ll be able to give scores at the “sub-national” level for counties (or counties-equivalent) everywhere! These, along with long-term means and daily anomalies will be a part of our Kernel offering  within the month.

Interested in learning about the crop health implications of a recent drought in Kenya? You can check out our crop health indices and recent anomalies even if we aren’t actively modeling the crop yields of these regions.

These global maps are much faster to load than our previous regional-based products, users can quickly distill the information they need about remote regions of the world.  We will overlay TellusLabs global croplands and pasture land masks for the whole planet to enable you to isolate areas where specific crops are grown.

Global processed imagery and daily plant health metrics are just the first steps.  In the coming weeks, you’ll see further improvements to our imagery offering within Kernel - imagery for new Vegetation Indices, anomaly maps, and much more. See for yourself by signing up for a free trial!
