Rhagodia as a Fodder Shrub in the Northern Wheat belt
This producer initiated research and development (PIRD) project sought to develop a new grazing system for the fodder shrub Rhagodia (R. preissii) to improve animal enterprises and prevent salinity. Five host properties in the Binnu region, WA, each planted a 5ha plot of Rhagodia. Despite record drought conditions four of the five sites achieved successful establishment but delayed establishment led to delayed grazing. The planned animal production data was not produced due the delayed grazing and variable palatability during different growth stages. This requires further investigation.
