According to the most recent coverage of the pasture research being conducted in New Zealand by AgResearch and one of its subsidiaries, Grasslanz Technology Ltd, scientists claim they can produce an improved cultivar of white clover to give cows and sheep extra protein, while at the same time reducing emissions of methane and nitrogen waste and improving animal health... AgResearch scientists have previously shown that condensed tannins found in some pasture species, such as lotus (a legume), can directly reduce methane emissions by as much as 16 per cent and, according to researcher Michael Tavendale, pastures containing condensed tannins are likely to become increasingly important to farmers...
