|Title:||Monitoring and Managing Spatial Variability in Pastures: Developing Active Optical Sensors to increase nitrogen use efficiency and GPS Tracking to understand livestock pasture utilisation and nutrient redistribution||Contributor(s):||Trotter, Mark (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/10359||Abstract:||Spatial variability is an inherent characteristic of agricultural landscapes. There is an increasing awareness amongst producers that monitoring and managing this variability could lead to increases in production. This paper reviews two recent advances in technology, Active Optical Sensors for site specific nutrient management and Autonomous Spatial Livestock Monitoring systems which seek to exploit spatial variability and enable producers to increase the efficiency and sustainability of their grazing systems.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||Dairy Research Foundation's Annual Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 6th - 7th July, 2011||Source of Publication:||Dairy Research Foundation Current Topics in Dairy Production, v.16, p. 103-105||Publisher:||University of Sydney||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1326-849X||Field of Research (FOR):||070104 Agricultural Spatial Analysis and Modelling||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||830302 Dairy Cattle||HERDC Category Description:||E2 Non-Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Series Name:||Current Topics in Dairy Production||Series Number :||16||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 206|
