Abstract

The productivity and quality of forage in pastures is highly related to the botanical composition. As the soil and topographic properties of pastures change, so does the botanical composition. Management zones, created from the classification of soil and topographic properties into homogeneous groups, can be used to characterize the spatial variability in pastures. Our objective was to examine whether management zones, created with slope and soil electrical conductivity (EC) data in pastures at Rhodes, differ in botanical composition.
