Tropical forages: an interactive selection tool
Using sown pastures in native and naturalised pasture systems has the potential to improve diet quality and can also allow for higher utilisation rates. If you are thinking about using a sown pasture in your grazing situation, the Tropical Forages website has a useful decision support webpage called Tropical Forages: an interactive selection tool. This tool has been designed to assist in the selection of forage species that are suitable for local conditions in the tropics and subtropics.
Tropical Forages will enable you to identify forage species suited to your climate, soils, production system and management. It provides comprehensive information on a wide range of forage species with details of adaptation, recommended uses and management.
