Reedy Creek Mid-SE Irrigators & MFMG Pasture Field walk ‘Messina & More’

Latest News >>

A workshop held in March this year by the Reedy Creek mid-SE irrigators and Mackillop Farm Management Group identified issues for producers farming on alkaline soils. The use of alternative pasture species was a major issue discussed on the day, plus how best to deal with hard shallow rock. Three pasture variety trials were established across the region as a result at Avenue Range, Reedy Creek and Millicent thanks to Naracoorte Seeds. There was a pasture walk held recently with 25 attendees. They inspected the trials, along with summer brassica crops and heard about Leigh Kent’s experience with rock breaking/munching.
