Let pastoral shrubs grow

(1984) Let pastoral shrubs grow. Elders Weekly, 21 June 1984. p. 8 [Publication] [Special Collections]


Pastoralists have been urged to seize the opportunity of good rains this year to allow shrublands to generate. David Wilcox, principal rangeland adviser with the Department of Agriculture, said summer rain followed by the recent good winter rains had ensured that the summer germination was maintained. He said that pastoralists need to take the opportunity to de-stock paddocks where the shrub country can benefit from a rest from grazing. It was a rare opportunity to lift the enterprise above an annual economy, raising a station's capacity to withstand future dry periods by allowing shrubs to recover.
