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 ...
Soil inorganic nitrogen in spatially distinct areas within a commercial dairy farm in Canterbury, New Zealand
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2017)
For precision nitrogen (N) fertilisation of grazed dairy paddocks, soil N distribution needs to be quantified. It is expected that farm infrastructure will affect inorganic-N distribution due to its influence on cow grazing ...
Phase Doppler quantification of agricultural spray compared with traditional sampling materials
(New Zealand Plant Protection Society (Inc.), 2017)
The quantification of spray mass has historically been accomplished by means of fluorescent dyes and various string and ground samplers to capture the dye-laden spray. However, these methods are typically not used in close ...
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 ...
