View the growth rate trends, forecasts and on a monthly, weekly and daily basis.
Growth rates are more than just the movement in growth between two measurements. On the Farm Dashboard, you can view your growth rates in a few ways, which we will explore below.
First, we'll take a look at the Growth Rate summary.
- The latest Reading is the latest growth rate calculation. There is a number with an arrow that points up or down to show the movement between the two recent measurements.
NB This number is best used with manual pasture measurements and not with satellite pasture measurements. This is due to the movement between day-to-day modelled growth rate readings is too volatile compared to the smoothed over seven days or more with manual measurement.
- The Forecast Daily Growth Rate indicates the trend in growth rates over the next two weeks by comparing the three weeks just gone to the forecasted two weeks ahead. The indications are as follows, INCREASING (green), MAINTAINING (yellow), DECREASING (red).
The above shows the most dramatic and the smoothest movement in growth rates. Next, we'll take a look at the nearer term.
- The Last 7 Days Average shows the weighted average growth rate for the entire farm and the portions if they are irrigated or dryland that was calculated in the week gone by.
- The Next 7 Days Average shows the weighted average growth rate for the entire farm and the portions if they are irrigated or dryland that is forecasted one week ahead.
NB This growth rate assessment provides the closest movement in growth rate for modelled growth rates when comparing to manual readings.
- Clicking on the arrow or swiping on a phone will open the annual growth rate charts.
- You can display the annual growth rate charts by the Daily, Weekly, Monthly values. Our satellite measurement customers get daily values and a 14-day forecast on this graph. This helps you get a granular view or smooth out the bumps for longer-term planning.
- Comparing this season (Recent 10 Months), with last season (Previous 12 Months) is available on each view.
- Printing the graph or emailing to a consultant, or for your own keeping is as easy as hitting the Download button.
