seed production activity

Catalogue: GRDC Updates
The production of on-farm annual pasture legume seed can provide a low cost source of seed allowing further areas of the farm to be sown at high sowing rates... The end cost of pasture seed produced on-farm has been calculated at two levels, a conservative average yield and a high yield that could be expected in favourable seasons... An important point is the higher seed content and higher rates of extraction in French serradella that results in a lower cost structure for this species compared to yellow serradella (Table 4)...

KEYMESSAGES Producing pasture legume seed from a nursery paddock can dramatically reduce the seed cost associated with a large scale pasture improvement program... RESULTS The end cost of pasture seed produced on-farm has been calculated at two levels, a conservative average yield and a high yield that could be expected in favourable seasons... An important point is the higher seed content and higher rates of extraction in French serradella that results in a lower cost structure for this species compared to yellow serradella (Table 4)...
