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.
