The integration and validation of precision management tools in mixed farming systems
MetadataShow full item record
In mixed farming systems up to 40% of farm area is in pasture, yet little is known about sub-paddock spatial variability/stability during a pasture phase. Precision agriculture technologies were used to incorporate pasture phase spatial variability into mixed farming precision management. Variations in paddock productivity over time were correlated between both crop and pasture phases, allowing site specific management to be adopted in both crop and pasture phases. However, the relationship was weaker in drought years.

Sub-paddock scale spatial variability between the pasture and cropping phases of mixed farming systems in AustraliaMcEntee, P.; Belford, Robert; Mandel, Roger; Harper, J.; Trotter, M. (2013)Precision farming techniques are now widely applied within Australian cropping systems. However, the use of spatial monitoring technologies to investigate livestock and pasture interactions in mixed farming systems remains ...
Improving the fit of new annual pasture legumes in Western Australian farming systems: experience from Cadiz and CasbahSalam, Kawsar Parveen (2010)Annual pasture legumes (APLs) are important in Western Australian farming systems, with subterranean clovers and annual medics being dominant. However, due to potential environmental, economic and biological constraints ...
