Real-time, non-destructive and in-field foliage yield and growth rate measurement in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.)
(BMC (part of Springer Nature), 2019-07-10)
Background: In-field measurement of yield and growth rate in pasture species is imprecise and costly, limiting scientific and commercial application. Our study proposed a LiDAR-based mobile platform for non-invasive ...
Assessment of mixed sward using context sensitive convolutional neural networks
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2020-02-27)
Breeding higher yielding forage species is limited by current manual harvesting and visual scoring techniques used for measuring or estimation of biomass. Automation and remote sensing for high throughput phenotyping has ...
Urine patch detection using LiDAR technology to improve nitrogen use efficiency in grazed pastures
In grazed dairy pastures, the largest N source for both nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching and nitrous oxide (N₂O) emissions is urine-N excreted by the animals. Additional application of N on urine patches as fertilizer may increase ...
