These slides show the month that the field was harvested. This was determined by the first time that the green portion was less than 0.32 between June and November. As the 2019 harvest was not completed a number of fields are still unharvested - these are displayed in olive.

The slides above show the newly planted fields - those with a minimum green value early in the year.  As the 2019 harvest was not completed when the analysis was done minimum values could not be determined for that year.

The Normalized Burn Ratio (NBR) was calculated using band 11(slides on the left) and band 12 (slides on the right). An increase in the NBR prior to harvest is an indicator that a burn has occurred.
