Golf course superintendents can tap into the same technology adopted by farmers that allows grass to be measured from space.
The ability to measure grass from space has extended beyond the focus on agricultural settings, and could be a game-changer for organizations involved in grass management, according to technology companies Origin Digital and Aspia Space.
With precise and remote grass measurement, golf course superintendents can gain valuable insights into the condition and health of their greens, fairways, and roughs. This enables more accurate monitoring and optimization of grassland management, leading to improved turf quality, efficient maintenance practices, and enhanced playing experiences for golfers. Golf courses can enhance sustainability, optimize the use of resources, and elevate the overall quality of their grounds.
