A new pasture dieback management guide for producers and agronomists that brings together the latest information on underlying factors and management strategies has been launched by Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA).
Pasture Dieback – A Management Guide for Producers and Agronomists was developed in close consultation across the red meat industry to respond to the on-farm challenges presented by pasture dieback.
MLA Group Manager – Productivity and Animal Wellbeing David Beatty said providing access to the latest information and research was an important part of the ongoing response to pasture dieback. “Our objective is to ensure pasture dieback research and development is focused on finding solutions for those affected by it and to provide valuable, up-to-date information to producers as it comes to hand, from the range of research organisations working on this topic” Mr Beatty said.
“A key focus is supporting the delivery of short-term solutions to feed livestock while a permanent solution to pasture dieback is investigated. A digital copy of Pasture Dieback – A Management Guide for Producers and Agronomists is available from the MLA web- site.
