2022 Riverina Pastures Research Update - Presentation

There are many considerations when it comes to renovating or establishing new pastures with rainfall, soils types, seed selection, grazing management, and chemical inputs, but achieving sufficient pastures to meet livestock production targets while protecting soil biology and maintaining long term viability is often the challenge.

Our staff worked with the Pastures and Livestock Teams at MLA, DPI, CSIRO and Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA) to deliver the 2022 Pasture Research Updates to help landholders meet this challenge.

Watch the following videos recorded on the day to get on the right path for pasture selection, sowing, management and considerations for the future.
