Understorey Pasture: Latest Finds

Forage pasture species that were planted in 2018 with variable shade conditions in a Tagasaste plantation have provided interesting insights.

The forage plants originally sown 2 years ago include: Cocksfoot, Lotus, Ryegrass, Microlaena, White Clover and Red Clover - with Prairie Grass planted 1 year ago.

An exciting and notable trend is that the Prairie Grass is already showing high dry matter production.

We are continuing to test the Tagasaste nutritive value and dry matter production, and look forward to discovering more insightful trends.
