Warren Luhrs’ property Wonga has been impacted by pasture dieback since 2016. In 2021, DAF planted a field trial in an area of Gayndah buffel grass that had been heavily affected by dieback. The aim of the trial is to compare a large number of grass and legumes species for their tolerance to pasture dieback. We now have results that we want to share with you!
Join us in the paddock at Wonga to discuss:
Stuart Buck is the leader of DAF’s pasture dieback research and engagement program. He has been a crop and pasture agronomist in central Queensland for 25 years and helped countless graziers with pasture development.
Paul Jones is a pasture scientist with 30 years experience working in native pasture grazing trials, land condition recovery, grazing systems and wet season spelling.
Kendrick Cox is a pasture scientist from Mareeba and leads research projects in North Queensland, including pasture seed production.
