Review of Productivity Decline in Sown Grass Pastures
Productivity decline in sown grass pastures was widespread in northern Australia and reduces production by approximately 50%. The economic impact of the decline was estimated at over $17B over the next 30 years. Graziers, the seed industry and researchers were concerned that this rundown would continue.
This report recommends that Meat and Livestock Australia (and other agencies) invest in targeted research, development and extension (R,D&E) to mitigate the effects of pasture rundown. The returns from effectively reducing the impact of pasture productivity decline are thought to be significant.
