Video: How satellites could revolutionise grass measuring

A number of farms in Wales are turning to a new pioneering satellite technology system, in an effort to get further data on their pasture measurements.

In addition to the traditional methods, the project collates measurements through light and radar data obtained via satellite, so farmers have a more better insight into the length of grass on their land.

We hear from Sam Carey, a farmer in Bala, who predicts how the project will affect his business.
