Fernández-Habas et al. (2021) have published a paper on the assessment of pasture quality in permanent grasslands and how it’s essential for their conservation and management, as it can contribute to making real-time decisions for livestock management.
In this study, they assessed the potential of Sentinel-2 configuration to predict forage quality in the diverse Mediterranean permanent grasslands of open woodlands. The development of large and representative datasets with a wide range of variation of pasture quality is pivotal to reducing the uncertainty and improving the accuracy of the predictive models.
In conclusion, this paper has contributed to the increase of knowledge on the potential and applicability of Sentinel-2 to predict the quality of Mediterranean permanent grasslands in open woodlands.
