Sub Tropical Grasses
Sub Tropical grasses are perennial with the dominance of their growing occurring in the summer periods. They are very slow to establish in the paddock, but once this has been achieved, they offer excellent long term persistence. A high proportion of the northern parts of Australia utilize these products due to their consistency of summer dominant rainfall. They can be over sown with hard seeded annual legumes to help bolster the winter feed production where they tend to lack plant growth. The feed quality can be good if maintained at a short and lush growth stage.
