The Benefits & Importance of Biodiversity in Pastures

'TALKIN AFTER HOURS': A FREE WORKSHOP & NETWORKING BBQ

The Benefits & Importance of Biodiversity in Pastures

Plant diversity is now recognised as a major influence on nutrient cycling in pastures. Having several plant species in a system fills niches, increases the chances of including a productive species, and if a stress occurs, a stress tolerant species can grow.

Our next ‘Talkin’ After Hours explores this critical topic, its importance & how to achieve it. This work shop will give you an insight and understanding of:

  • How biodiversity can affect pasture production

  • How many and which species should ideally make up your pasture mix

  • New species available for use in diversifying pastures

  • Optimal sowing time for different pasture species
