Pasture legumes information and management guide

Published: 15 Dec 2023

'Pasture legumes information and management guide' shares knowledge to support the management of new annual legume pasture species domesticated, bred and selected to suit southern Australia.

These 'second generation hard-seeded legumes' include different species of clover, serradella, biserrula and trigonella - they are useful where subclover or medics do not perform well.

The guide covers species choice, soil requirements, nursery paddocks, establishment; maximising nitrogen fixation, rotation options, harvesting and livestock production.
