Different pasture management techniques are being investigated throughout 2018 and 2019 aimed at either combatting local issues or varying normal practice to improve pasture establishment or production.

  • Project Run By: Tasman Landcare Group
  • Project Activities:

    Trial sites have been established investigating:

    • reducing the impact of red-headed cockchafer beetle larvae by heavy stock trampling
    • the effect of low and high intensity grazing on pasture establishment
    • the effect of different rates of lime application on pasture production
    • pasture establishment on difficult soils
    • the effect of soil inoculants on pasture
