Pasture Measurement

GrassMaster probe and Rising Plate Meter comparison

Below are the summarised results of the dry matter estimation of a chicory pasture carried out on a dairy farm in Hamilton New Zealand in January 2012 comparing the use of a GrassMaster (GMII) pasture meter and a standard Rising Plate Meter (RPM).

The pasture was largely Chicory (juvenile) mix plus a small amount of ryegrass.

The measured quadrat plots were 0.2m2, or 44.72cm inside x 44.72cm
