Agricultural Stress Index - May 2016

Agricultural Stress Index - May 2016

The Agriculture Stress Index (ASI) helps show how ‘stressed’ crop areas are by combining vegetation condition and temperature variables. The compiled results are then analysed over time, by comparing current values to the long-term minimum and maximum, and spatially, by aggregating agriculture areas by administrative area.

The ASI should be analysed along with other variables such as Rainfall and Vegetation condition which are available as separate RFSAN products.

This map shows the situation for May 2016.
