Weather conditions and frequency of reports
As with most pasture measurement systems, limitations based on weather conditions are to be expected.
Although our satellites pass over New Zealand daily, we will only send you a report if the satellite captures a clear image of your farm so we have usable information about your pasture. As weather conditions, including cloud, can restrict the satellite’s ability to get a clear image, the frequency of your reports will vary. Every time the satellite captures a clear image of your farm, you will receive a report the next day.
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.
