Wherever you are in the world...
Imagine your pasture being measured while you're busy farming.

Ever wonder how true your eye is?

  • For farmers who want the best insights

  • Outperform Your Eye: Consistently achieve better results than visual inspections.
  • Comprehensive Scanning: Every square metre of your paddock monitored.
  • Global Data Leverage: Utilising years of farm data from around the world.
  • Proven Accuracy: Test farm proven R2 = 0.89, MAE = 56Kgs.
  • Frequent Readings: More readings per week than sleep-ins; average frequency of readings is every 3 days.
Highly accurate satellite pasture measuring

We've taken away the guess work with frequent readings.

Imagine saving hours of labour…
Let satellites handle the heavy lifting for you.

Satellite Pasture Reading Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Satellite Image Technology
The satellites on the Ultimate add-on fly over near daily, providing regular and up-to-date information on your pasture. The satellites on the Essential add-on fly over approx. every 5 days of so depending on your location.
The satellite images have a resolution of up to 3 square meters per pixel in the Ultimate add-on, ensuring detailed and precise readings. The resolution is up to 10 square meters per pixel in the Essential add-on.
Yes, we do. NDVI is one of many indices that are a crucial part of Pio's machine learning models, but we also incorporate other management records to refine the readings along with local weather data, and a few proprietry spatial datasets.
Clouds can sometimes interfere, so, Pio deploys a cloudy days model that delivers pasture covers and growth rates on a daily basis. Plus, with daily satellite flights, you can expect consistent satellite-backed readings despite cloudy days.
Satellite-backed readings are typically taken at least weekly during wetter seasons and almost daily when it’s sunny, depending on cloud cover in your area. The satellites included in the Ultimate add-on have enabled pasture readings in higher rainfall zones.
Our powerful algorithms learn to identify and exclude non-pasture objects from measurements, ensuring accurate readings.
Remote Measuring Accuracy/Consistency
Instead of focusing on accuracy alone, we prioritise consistency. Consistency ensures you can pre-graze at the right cover and achieve your desired post-grazing residuals, which inherently improves accuracy - not to mention your livestock are happier.
We use advanced statistical algorithms and machine learning to turn your data into meaningful metrics, training our imagery to align perfectly with your farm and paddocks.
Our remote measuring or we prefer to call reading, is highly consistent, typically outperforming traditional methods like the rising plate meter when aligned with our models.
Farming Systems and Regions
Absolutely! We support farmers globally, wherever grass grows. Contact us for assistance with setting up your farm.
Yes, our system adapts to both dryland and irrigated pastures, providing consistent biomass estimates regardless of conditions.
Yes, our models are dynamic and adapt to various pasture species and conditions. If you're measuring forage crops like lucerne, millet, oats, maize, sorghum, etc., we're keen to hear your feedback as we develop this feature.
You’ll receive (far too many benefits and value to mention here, but of course) regular pasture covers, growth rates for individual paddocks, pasture forecasts, and leaf emergence models, all integrated into the Pasture.io app. Plus, you get the full suite of Pasture.io tools for optimal farm management.
