DefinitionThe Ground Cover as an amount of soil that is covered by plants
CommentHere, the cover of the soil with green plants (chlorophyll) is determined. If there are no plants in the field, the cover is 0%, the soil is completely covered with plants (leaves), this corresponds to 100%. The measurement can be determined as described above via sensors / satellites and calculation of biomass indices or via a camera system and corresponding image analysis. Soil coverage can now be used directly to the online application or to create prescription maps.
