Pastures

Our pasture programs for lucerne, annual medics and clovers are managed in partnership with:

  • Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA)
  • South Australian Grain Industry Trust (SAGIT)
  • private enterprise.

Key objectives of this subprogram are:

  • Adaptation of pastures to the combined stresses of drought and grazing.
  • Powdery mildew resistance and tolerance in annual medics.
  • Nutritional quality of pastures and their temporal patterns of digestibility.
  • Herbicide tolerance in annual medics.
  • Tolerance of lucerne and its rhizobia to soil acidity.
