The importance of a good pasture renewal program prior to sowing lucerne for the first time is the topic of this video. Tyler Good (Finishing Manager, Willesden Farm, Banks Peninsula) and Professor Derrick Moot (Dryland Pastures Research Group, Lincoln University) talk about supplementary crops, weed control, sowing rates, pests and effects of spring water stress on lucerne establishment.

Hill Country Futures was a long-term $8.1m programme focused on future proofing the profitability, sustainability and wellbeing of New Zealand’s hill country farmers, their farm systems, the environment, and rural communities. For more information, visit: https://www.hillcountryfutures.co.nz/
