How it works
1. Enter your address or zoom in and drop the pin on the map - coloured areas show where more data is available.
2. Choose the season and select characteristics of your farm from the drop down menu. See soil definitions here.
3. Scroll down below the map to the graphs to find potential, the pasture and crop eaten (t/ha) that the top 10% of farmers have exceeded in the selected area (marked with a number and a solid vertical line). There will be some variation, but two thirds of the time, we expect the potential to lie between the two dashed vertical lines.
Notes: More details in this Technical Series article. The pasture eaten graphs use DairyBase data. Data in some areas may be limited due to the number of farms enrolled in DairyBase. If it is not used for a few minutes, the tool will go shaded – hit refresh on your browser to wake it up.
The difference between this number and your calculated pasture and crop eaten value is your potential for improvement.
Please allow several seconds for the tool to load...
