Nitrogen application is common and profitable in dairy cattle grazing rotations and may also be profitable for strategic applications in beef grazing and for hay production.
Good practice nutrient management requires adequate monitoring of soils and plant nutrient levels, analysis of nutrient levels to meet plant and animal production needs, the correct application tec
Mitigating the risk of wind and water erosion in Western Australia is being boosted by a new project to track groundcover in cropping areas using satellite imagery.
Kikuyu (Cenchrus clandestinus) is a subtropical, perennial C4 grass that is widely used as a pasture and turf.
Soil testing and plant analysis are valuable tools to diagnose constraints to crop and pasture production.
This treatment is recommended for saline sites that can support a mix of salt tolerant species and some non-tolerant pasture species, where livestock are present.
Saltland pastures always have a range of plant species, even in dense saltbush plantations.
To successfully establish saltbush with an understorey, choose the right species, use good seed or seedlings, minimise waterlogging, and use the right establishment methods.
A series of field experiments have been established across the grainbelt in recent months as part of a new project that aims to increase the benefits and profitability generated by soil amelioratio
Rhodes grass (Chloris gayana) is a subtropical/summer active perennial C4 grass. It is a tufted grass that sends out strong, above ground runners (stolons), allowing it to spread rapidly.
