The September 2020 pasture outlook.

Thanks to John Deere, Kondinin Group has engaged DataFarming to produce these 250m pixel maps indicating green biomass.

The maps detail green biomass derived using satellite-based NDVI imagery.

While a comparison against maps from last month highlight subtle differences can be found.

In particular, Gipplsand and southern New South Wales has seen pasture levels deteriorate.

The maps exclude land uses other than grazing, meaning the image is not distorted with 'noise' from the biomass in areas like national parks and forestry.

Regular NDVI maps can be accessed readily from sources including the Bureau of Meteorology, but the grazing exclusive nature of these maps is what makes them unique.

Kondinin Group will continue to publish these grazing-specific green biomass maps over the coming months thanks tosupport from John Deere
