A description of rangeland on commercial and communal land, Peddie district, South Africa

A description of rangeland on commercial and communal land, Peddie district, South Africa

African Journal of Range and Forage Science 16(2/3): 89-95

Analysis of a Landsat TM image from a rangeland near Peddie, Eastern Cape, South Africa revealed differences in two vegetation indices (normalized difference vegetation index, NDVI, and moving standard deviation index, MSDI) between communal and commercial rangeland. It was suggested that the difference in the MSDI reflected differences in rangeland condition.
