The basis for any productive, sustainable pasture is a dense healthy base of desirable plant species. In most Fleurieu and Hills pasture situations, this means maintaining a good base of desirable perennial grasses or legumes, that provide year round land protection and competition against weeds. They also provide a longer period of forage for grazing stock than with other plant types.
Specific annual forages (including cereals, short term rye grasses and legumes) do have important roles, either when renovating pastures or in cropping rotations.
In either scenario, sound pasture management is critical for the best results. FPAG’s agronomists can advise on all the important elements of a sound pasture program including:
Soil and plant testing and pasture nutrition
Preferred grazing management (and how this can boost pasture growth and reduce pest or weed problems)
Weed and pest management
Cost-effective pasture renovation
Hay and silage production
