Assessing biomass yield of kale (Brassica oleracea var. acephala L.) fields using multi-spectral aerial photography
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, 2015-02)
Aerial images were taken in June 2014 with a multispectral VIS/NIR camera of the canopy from 14 kale (Brassica oleracea var. acephala L.) fields in Canterbury, New Zealand before this forage was grazed by cows. Images ...
Photogrammetry for assessment of pasture biomass
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2019-11-04)
New tools are required to provide estimates of pasture biomass as current methods are time consuming and labour intensive. This proof-of-concept study tested the suitability of photogrammetry to estimate pasture height in ...
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 ...
Active optical sensing of canopies in pasture management
(NZ Grassland Association, 2015)
Commercial units of Active Optical Sensor (AOS) systems are designed for sensing arable crops to estimate the required amount of nitrogen fertiliser and are well established in intensive arable cropping systems in ...
