hi, @organizators, can you please help with sowing date info, does all fields were planted at the same period, and when it was?

Fields were planted between 2016 and 2019. For each field, the data available is from the appropriate year. For eg, a field planted March 2016 and harvested later that year will have imagery etc from Jan - Dec 2016.

@Johnowhitaker: Does that mean that planting time was always around March (in different years) or can they be planted also in Nov/Dec (I think there is a secondary planting season in Easter/Northern Kenya)?

Are the fields from the same area and harvested in a similar time as well?
