PureVine™ Vigor Pro

VineView's PureVine™ Vigor Pro package includes estimated Plant Counts, Vigor Statistics, PureVine™ Zones, Canopy Gaps and Canopy Width.

With VineView’s suite of scientifically-calibrated vine vigor maps, you get insightful, timely information to improve grape quality and yield and reduce costs associated with:

Homogenization

Identify and reduce variability across parcels for optimal vine balance.

Harvest Segmentation

Locate areas in your parcels to increase and improve the production of premium grapes and optimize harvest scheduling.

Canopy Management

Control the microclimate of your vines to improve grape quality and yield.

PureVine™ EVI

Evaluate vineyard health and uniformity with detailed vigor maps and granular plant-level resolution of isolated canopy data.

PureVine™ Zones

Save time and improve fruit and harvest quality by using PureVine™ Zones maps to ensure representative sampling, precision farming and differential harvesting.

Canopy Gaps

Identify areas of diseased, missing, young or dead vines at the plant level — which can be used to better predict yields and optimize vineyard productivity.

Canopy Width

Assess canopy structure with PureVine™ Canopy Width, measured in feet.

Aerial Color Image

Identify vineyard boundaries, orientation of rows and new plantings with a high resolution color vineyard image.

Color Infrared

Highlights photosynthetically active vegetation at 6-inch resolution.

EVI Statistics Report

A comprehensive vineyard productivity and field efficiency analysis, including a vigor statistics report with number of plants, acres, and variability within vineyard.

What customers are saying about our products:

The support has been terrific during the entire process and even more so after the purchase now that we’re doing...

After several years of using hand held sensors for vigour measurements in our clients’ vineyards, we were amazed at the speed and simplicity of using SkySquirrel’s drone solution. The resolution and quality of the end result exceeded our expectations.

What impressed me is how easy the maps are to read! They tell the story immediately of what is happening with the plants. I was also really impressed with the accuracy.

What is EVI?

Our Calibrated Vine Vigor data products are created using the Enhanced Vegetation Index, a ratio of how much sunlight is reflected off the plants in different colour bands, including infrared.

Did you know?

NDVI has been the standard multi-spectral image used to measure vigor in the wine industry, but unfortunately, NDVI has a number of inherent shortcomings. One of the most important shortcomings is that the data is highly dependent on the time of day at which the image is taken. This is because of the change in solar angle. This means that using NDVI has the potential to provide inaccurate information and can show different data at different times of the day. NDVI results also vary based on other factors, like shadowing or soil variations. In order to correct for these inaccuracies, our scientists have adopted a new, improved version of NDVI, called the Enhanced Vegetation Index. Using additional wavelengths of light, we are able to correct the errors associated with NDVI.

Take a look at our examples below

As you can see in the images above, NDVI produces vastly different results when taken at different times on the same day. Clearly the vigor of the vines has not changed over a 3-hour period, as would be implied from the images above.
Using additional spectral information and calculations, EVI corrects for the difference in atmospheric conditions and solar incidence angle, providing you with more accurate, actionable data.
