The majority of the property was capeweed, onion grass, bare ground and thistles with some areas of ryegrass and phalaris.

A simple explanation of this management is provided.

Stipa 8th Native Grasslands National Conference: “No more sowing seeds with Native Grasses”
Landscape function and grassland condition are important indicators of the health of a landscape and its capability to retain water and nutrient re-serves and respond vigorously to good growing conditions. Being able to accurately and quickly assess function and condition enables land managers to improve plant and animal performance at low cost and risk and reduces vulnerability to difficult conditions.
These conference Films will provide you with the skills and knowledge to:
- Lower your farming risk.
- Keep more money over time in your business.
- Increase biodiversity on your farm.
- Improve your soil health
- Determine what regeneration technique will work for you.
