This project was led by the Birchip Cropping group with support from Riverine Plains Inc.
This project aimed to deliver profitable outcomes from increased stocking rates. It investigated the better utilisation of feed grown and improved crop production through best agronomic practice.
Riverine Plains Inc was involved in a dryland grazing demonstration at Tungamah which aimed to determine the effect of grazing on the grain yield of Naparoo wheat. The sheep grazed an estimated 700kg of DM/ha during the 3 week grazing period. The profitability of the paddock was not compromised by grazing and provided stock with feed during July 2011. The results from this trial are available here as an excerpt from “Research for the Riverine Plains, 2012”.
