This FAPAR image shows the vegetation index of much of India. Green areas indicate good photosynthetic activity, while yellow areas indicate low activity and rusty red areas, high activity.

Most of the country shows good activity, mixed in with some patches of low activity. The index is generally highest along the coast, particularly to the south (see full image). A few areas of high activity can be seen to the north in the full image.
