Pasture dieback field day — Moura

March 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join us to inspect the pasture dieback management trial on Wonga

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:

  • Trial results – which grass and legume species are the most productive?
  • Planting techniques – how was the trial prepared so that establishment was so successful?
  • New grass and legume species – what are they and how suitable are they for you?
  • More development – what has Warren done on Wonga as a result of the trial?
