Improving productivity of rundown sown grass pastures

The decline in sown grass pastures in northern Australia is widespread and there will be significant returns from effectively reducing the impact of this decline. The Meat & Livestock Australia funded project, Improving productivity of rundown sown grass pastures, aimed to address this problem by implementing recommendations from the Review of productivity decline in sown grass pasture (PDF, 2MB).
