Webinar: Establishing small-seeded pasture legumes in existing grass pastures

Beef Central, 04/12/2015



LEGUMES offer one of the largest production gain management options in northern Australia.

It’s common though, for legumes to fail in sub-tropical and tropical grass pastures due to poor establishment.

Research teams and demonstration trials across southern and central Queensland are investigating different aspects of legume establishment.

In this free webinar, participants will hear:

  • what production gains can be expected from legumes
  • how much legume is required in a pasture to optimise production
  • issues surrounding establishment of legumes in existing grass pastures
  • results from research trials, including cultivated strip width, impact of seed bed preparation, moisture storage, broadcasting or drilling seed and post-emergence herbicides
  • the importance of seed quality and more…
