What is pasture dieback?
Pasture dieback is a condition causing death of patches of pasture across a range of sown and native grasses. It’s prevalent across northern, central and south-east Queensland.
- vivid yellowing and/or reddening of leaves
- as the condition progresses, plants become unthrifty and eventually die in patches less than one metre in diameter to paddock scale (10 to hundreds of hectares)
- reduction in root system and grass density.
