Crops for the season

Table of seasonal crops

The research analysed the effects of planting different combinations of crops over a period of up to five years. Each paddock had a different rotation of seasonal crops and was returned to pasture at varying times. Cows grazed a combination of crops and pasture throughout the year. Results were compared with 'pasture alone' systems.
