Scattered storms and showers over the eastern portion of the continent have helped to reduce the rate of pasture decline.  Looking at the national position, there have been only slight changes in the level of total standing Dry Matter in the past two weeks, reflecting the variation in rainfall and the ongoing bushfire impact in several states.

It is important for users to note that these national images can be refined to provide more detail on a regional basis using the Cibo Labs Regional Comparison.  This can be used to focus on regional data that may show the impact of localised weather or fire events.  A further level of detail for individual properties is available for users who have created an Australian Feedbase Monitor account, which can be accessed both through the MyMLA portal or through the Cibo Labs website.

The Cibo Labs National Comparison can be used to freely access these layers ( to view the most recent images from a national, state or catchment level.  Users can also access past images to compare national changes in Pasture Biomass or Ground Cover.  This tool can complement the Australian Feedbase Monitor which can also be created within the Cibo Labs Web Site
