Pasture insights provided from grazing-specific green biomass maps – Farming Ahead

By Staff , in Biofuels , at August 26, 2020

Kondinin Group has also engaged DataFarming to produce these 250m pixel maps indicating green biomass.

The maps detail green biomass derived using satellite-based NDVI imagery.

In line with solid rainfall in central New South Wales, green biomass levels are strong, extending down into Victoria.

The maps exclude land uses other than grazing, meaning the image is not distorted with ‘noise’ from the biomass in areas like national parks and forestry.

Regular NDVI maps can be accessed readily from sources including the Bureau of Meteorology, but the grazing exclusive nature of these maps is what makes them unique.

Kondinin Group will continue to publish these grazing-specific green biomass maps over the coming months thanks to John Deere
