News and Announcements
We recently fixed a problem with an input data layer to the VegDRI model. As of the 5/22/2016 product, VegDRI is a closer representation of current conditions than observed in prior products.
Historical VegDRI data was affected by input SPI data accuracy [from 12/14/2015 to 5/15/2016]. We will be reprocessing these periods in the near future. We apologize for any inconvenience. The schedule for reprocessing will be announced on this website.
