Pasture cropping is a sustainable farming practice that gives graziers the potential to maintain summer active perennials and carry more stock through the summer. Another technique, spray topping, can also be used to promote native grasses with a similar aim.

At this workshop, we’ll look at a pasture cropping trial site which established predominantly indigenous pasture species in 2015-16.

Hear from farmer Colin Seis, the winner of National Landcare Award in 2015 for his innovation of pasture cropping. You will also be able to speak to the farmers about what works on the ground and see the data that came from th trials.

Lunch provided.
