The F300 Electronic Rising Platemeter provides farmers with a reliable and accurate method of measuring pasture within a given range. It provides a valuable tool for maintaining consistency in the measurement of pasture when undertaken by more than one person, providing a benchmark to reduce variations in visual assessments.
It has been widely used in the dairy industry for a number of years and more recently in sheep, beef and deer enterprises. Currently the Ag Hub Platemeter is sold in over fourteen countries including Australia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Mexico, USA, Canada, United Kingdom, South Africa, China and Japan. In New Zealand it is used by both farmers and consultants to provide pasture height and density for determining feeding regimes for given classes of stock. A companion product is the P-Plus Pasture Cover software program which provides a useful tool for recording and reporting pasture covers obtained by the Platemeter.
