Weather conditions and frequency of reports
As with most pasture measurement systems, limitations based on weather conditions are to be expected.
New Zealand is called the land of the long white cloud for a reason, and cloud can restrict the satellite’s ability to capture a clear image of your farm. We’ve countered this by gaining access to daily satellites images but as weather changes, so will the frequency of your reports.
Based on what we know about New Zealand’s climate and weather conditions, we estimate you are likely to receive a report every 7 to 10 days, even in winter.
FarmWise have reviewed the SPACE™ service and endorse the use of it to obtain pasture measurement data. FarmWise are specialists in helping you optimise pasture and farm resources.
If you would like to discuss how to use the measurement data to achieve pasture optimisation talk with a FarmWise Consultant.
