Objectives of this project:
- Demonstrate the establishment of a range of new annual legumes in dryland hill country.
- Demonstrate the importance of autumn and spring management in increasing the amount of existing annual legumes on uncultivable dryland hill country.
The Innovation Farm trial takes place over two trial areas – “Nikau paddock” and “Hughes paddock”.
For a full breakdown of how you can use grazing management to encourage sub clover on dryland pastures, check out the following factsheet:
