Applications have now closed for Early Access to GeoGraze – a new online high-resolution pasture monitoring service – through a voluntary testing program.
What is GeoGraze?
GeoGraze has been designed to provide accurate estimates of feed on offer (FOO) in kg DM/ha, along with pasture growth rates (PGR) in kg DM/ha/day, based on analysis of 10m resolution satellite imagery. It will also include a suite of tools to help with planning grazing rotations and day-to-day pasture management. The intention is for GeoGraze to fill the gap created by the recent closure of the Pastures From Space Plus service, with improvements in accuracy and a few additional features also thrown in.
When will it be ready?
GeoGraze is scheduled for commercial launch in mid-2020. Beta testing is now underway with a small closed user group.
