Soil the key to grazing production

Effective management of soils and pastures is fundamental to the productivity of the agricultural industry and the health of the environment.

Soil health and pasture quality affect grazing production, vegetative cover and the quality of water run-off into watercourses.

A important component of the BBB Grazing Support program is to extend landholder knowledge, understanding and application of good soil health management techniques.

A healthy soil improves productivity and the bottom line for producers, as well as providing long term benefits for the grazing landscape.
