This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of India in winter. The central part of the country shows a low index, light yellow in color. Photosynthetic activity becomes higher as one moves closer to the coasts; the green color indicates a good index.

In the full image, some areas of high activity (rusty red) can be observed in the Gangetic Plain to the north, particularly west of New Delhi.
