Learning Goal: I’m working on a agriculture writing question and need a sample draft to help me learn.A landholder in south-east Australia is wanting to establish an improved pasture in a 100 hectare paddock. The paddock has been cultivated to prepare a favourable seedbed and there is only a scattering of trees. Using the Pastures Australia Selection Tool (https://keys.lucidcentral.org/keys/v3/pastures/index.htm) and the Tropical Forages Database (https://www.tropicalforages.info/text/intro/index.html), make a recommendation on what would be a suitable pasture mix for planting, from a suitability and productivity perspective. The pasture mix should contain at least two pasture grasses and two legumes and be suitable for both cattle and horses.Consider the following parameters associated with the location and characteristics of the paddock:Permanent pasture (>5 years)
Rainfall – 765 mm
Soil texture – Light (Sandy, sandy loam)
Soil pH – Neutral (6.5 – 7.0)
Soil drainage – Well drained
Level of soil salinity – Low
In your response, include the objective of the exercise, summarise information about the location and specifics of the paddock, mention how many and which grasses and legumes were identified as suitable, and why you selected the particular grasses and legumes that you are recommending. The fact sheets in the Tropical Forages database are a good source of specific information on individual pasture species.
