Riverine Plains 2010 crop reflectance and nitogen requirement trials locations
Aims
  • To demonstrate the use of crop sensors.
  • To explore the relationship between in-season crop reflectance, crop biomass andcrop nitrogen content.
  • To assess the suitability of the data to assist in making decisions on crop nitrogen requirements.
Key messages

During 2010, trials were carried out on a number of paddocks near Dookie, Vic and Yarrawonga, VIC to explore the relationship between in-season crop reflectance, crop biomass and crop nitorgen content. In-season crop reflectance was measured using CropCircle snesors, which use NDVI (Normalised Difference Vegetation Index). The ultimate goal is to assess the suitability of the data to assist in making decisions on crop nitrogen requirements as the season unfolds. In this reprt one of the paddocks at Dookie is used as an example.
