"Pasture Picker" allows you to
find species suited to specific conditions of the soil and climate
environment and grazing management.
If you want information
about a particular species, select from the list below:
Grasses for the tropics and subtropics
Legumes for the tropics and subtropics
The emphasis here
is on the suitability of species for tropical and subtropical Australia
although the information should be useful in similar environments
This species information
has been taken from the book A Guide to Better Pastures for the Tropics and Subtropics
(revised 5th edition 1995) written by L. R. Humphreys and I. J. Partridge, but has been updated
over the years where necessary. It has relied greatly on the knowledge
of officers of the Department of Primary Industries, Queensland,
and of CSIRO Division of Tropical Agriculture.
would be pleased to receive further information and observations
from within and beyond Australia.
