Short summary
This study aimed to explore the potential of a multi-sensor system for assessment of biomass in pastures under different grazing intensities. Prediction accuracy with a mobile application of sensors was always lower than when sensors were applied statically. However accuracy of biomass prediction improved with increasing grazing intensity. Although the limitations associated with the system especially in very lenient pastures, the finding opens up a perspective for future grazing management.
