This handbook has been produced for farmers and others who grow, or want to grow and learn about tagasaste. It draws on the published literature on tagasaste in New Zealand and overseas, plus the practical experience of those who have worked with tagasaste. Key results from the Sustainable Farming Fund project ‘One Winter – Two Springs’ (Project No. 405641), on tagasaste establishment and management in hill country pastures, are included. The handbook covers the growth requirements of tagasaste, its uses, forage production and quality, practical guidelines on its establishment and management, economic benefits, practical tips from experienced growers and frequently asked questions. Suggestions are provided for further reading, including the published literature on which this handbook is based.
