An accurate estimation of biomass is needed to understand the spatio-temporal changes of forage resources in pasture ecosystems and to support grazing management decisions. However, a timely evaluation of biomass is a challenge, as it requires targeted and efficient means like technical sensing methods to assess numerous data for the creation of continuous maps. In order to calibrate ultrasonic and spectral sensors, a field experiment with heterogeneous pastures continuously stocked by cows at… CONTINUE READING
