This map is an intermediate output from one of our PhD students, Richa Marwaha. It shows current grass covers in Teagasc Moorepark as discerned by satellite. It shows how close we are to being to produce grass cover, biomass (Dry Matter) and management history form satellite. We’ve had a number of projects (along with projects in other Teagasc Centers) working in the area if mapping grass paddocks, some with handheld instruments, some with drones and some by satellite.
