Analysis of vegetation condition (vigor) indicated by satellite-derived vegetation index (NDVI) further supports that growing conditions improved due to better weather in the north. Seasonal NDVI increased throughout the northern growing areas in comparison to average conditions over recent years (1997/98-2000/01). Central and southern Iraq, however, do not appear to have experienced similar improvement
