As climate variability increases, farmers need resilient summer forage crops. With pasture quality falling during mid- and late-summer this project explored mixed-species, single-graze forage crops that can fill the feed gap. This article summarises the results of a Rural Professionals Fund project that aimed to evaluate the performance of a variety of diverse summer seed mixes against a monoculture single graze crop, with the aim of developing more resilient forage crops that provide high-quality feed economically with lower inputs.
