An introduction to the pastures of the Katherine region: Part 2 Common uses for introduced species

Introduced pasture species have an important role in the Katherine region as special purpose pastures within a predominantly native pasture grazing system. While useful, they are unlikely to replace native pastures as the primary source of feed for extensive cattle herds in this region due to climatic and financial constraints. Part 1 (PDF, 52 KB) describes the various introduced pasture species available for the Katherine region. Part 2 (this Agnote) outlines some of the more common uses of these species. Authors: D. Parker and M. Cobiac, Department of Primary Industries, Northern Territory (2002).
