Optimising Groundcover

Event Training
03 April 2023 until 03 April 2023
Optimising Groundcover

Find out how free, easy-to-use remote sensing tools can be used to effectively measure and optimise groundcover on your property.

With meteorologists predicting an El Niño year, reduced rainfall will likely put pressure on groundcover levels resulting in reduced pasture availability and an increased risk of soil erosion.

Remote monitoring tools offer a way to avoid the risks of a low rainfall year by providing timely groundcover images to help farmers make informed grazing management decisions. Join expert speakers from the Department of Environment and Water and Pinion Advisory to find out how remote monitoring imagery can be used to help make the most of your available feed while reducing erosion risks and increasing production and profitability.

During this webinar, speakers will cover topics including:
• Using satellite imagery to create baseline groundcover levels
• In-season monitoring to maximise feed availability
• Practical decision making using satellite data
• What tech? An overview of groundcover monitoring tools and technology

When: Monday 3 April 2023
12 pm – 1:30 pm
