Welcome to the TGS HomePage

The Tropical Grassland Society of Australia Inc. was formed in 1963 to promote the practical application of research information on pasture improvement in tropical and sub-tropical environments. The society had members with many interests in pastures, including primary producers, private companies and government research and extension personnel in Australia and overseas.

Because of declining membership over the past decade, the Society could no longer continue and was wound up at the end of 2010.

Upon the initiative of former TGS members and CIAT (Cali, Colombia), a new bilingual (English and Spanish), open-access online journal Tropical Grasslands - Forrajes Tropicales, was established in 2013.
