Sustainable pasture systems in the humid tropics of Queensland
Queensland Department of Primary Industries, South Johnstone, Queensland, Australia
Research and development of improved pasture technology for the humid tropical coast of Queensland has resulted in the successful development, maintenance and regeneration of large areas of commercial pastures, many of which are now over 20 years old. Weeds have been controlled, a good balance of desirable pasture species has been maintained and large numbers of high quality fat cattle are being turned off. These demonstrations of sustainable high production are contrary to most experience with pastures in the humid tropics.
