Short summary
We compared the ability of in situ spectral and satellite sensors to estimate the productivity of Mediterranean grasslands undergoing different fertilization treatments. The objective of the study was to identify the best set of spectral predictors. In situ CO gas exchange and vegetation reflectance measurements were used for this purpose. Our results show the potential of Sentinel 2 and Landsat 8 satellites to monitor grasslands in support of a sustainable agriculture management.
