Irrigation index with Planet Scope

Hi,
We are currently using the SWIR band from S2 to check the irrigation in rice crops. We need to see if the surface is flooded with water, under the crop canopy.
The SWIR band allows us to se through the crop canopy.
We are trying to have the same data in a daily frecuency with Planet Scope. I have tested the NDWI, but the results show the hydric state of the crop, not the prescense of water under it.
I wonder if you know a way or index to see water prescence under the leaves with PlanetScope bands.

Thank you.

Hi Matias,

As the water is under the crops this is very difficult to detect without the SWIR band which is not available with Planetscope data. You can use NDWI derived from the Green and NIR channels as documented here but this is probably not useful in your case.

My suggestion would be to try utilising Data Fusion methods using Planetscope in conjunction with Sentinel-2. You can find out more about Data Fusion in Sentinel Hub APIs here where there are some great examples too.

Let us know how you get on!

Thank you William for your answer, as always useful.
We will try some more options before using fusion.
I will let you know the final outcome.
