|Title:||Chilean needle grass - three years of best practice management||Contributor(s):||Grech, Charles J (author); McLaren, D (author); Sindel, Brian Mark (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11529||Abstract:||Chilean needle grass ('Nassella neesiana' (Trin. & Rupr.) Barkworth) (CNG) has perennial characteristics that allow it to persist in pasture and outcompete more desirable species. Once reproductive, CNG produces numerous unpalatable flower stalks and little leaf material, reducing stocking rate and grazing utilisation. This summary describes an experiment that commenced in 2003, comparing sheep set stocking to strategic/rotational grazing of a CNG-dominated pasture with combinations of treatments including chemical control, fertilisation and pasture rehabilitation. The aim was to reduce the dominance of CNG in different climatic regions.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||16th Australian Weeds Conference, Cairns, Australia, 18th - 22nd May, 2008||Source of Publication:||16th Australian Weeds Conference Proceedings: Weed Management 2008 - Hot Topics in the Tropics, p. 487-487||Publisher:||Queensland Weeds Society||Place of Publication:||Brisbane, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||070308 Crop and Pasture Protection (Pests, Diseases and Weeds)||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||960413 Control of Plant Pests, Diseases and Exotic Species in Farmland, Arable Cropland and Permanent Cropland Environments||HERDC Category Description:||E3 Extract of Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.caws.org.au/awc/2008/awc200814871.pdf||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 180|
