Establishing Perennial Shrubs for Pasture

Ian Ellery, on the family property at Morchard in the Upper North of South Australia, explains how returning unproductive cereal cropping land has been assisted by trial work conducted through the ENRICH program.

This program assessed a range of perennial fodder shrub species from which the five best were selected for larger scale evaluation. This project is supported by Upper North Farming Systems, through funding from the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country, Eyre Peninsula NRM Board and Rural Solutions SA.
