Adaptation of introduced pasture, shade and crop species on cracking clays (vertisols) in north-west Queensland



Adaptation of introduced pasture, shade and crop species on cracking clays (vertisols) in north-west Queensland



Australian Plant Introduction Review 19(1): 1-27



440 accessions of introduced and selected pasture, shade and crop species were evaluated in 21 field trials at 12 sites in NW Queensland. On the Mitchell grass plains (annual rainfall of 375-500 mm) Sesbania, Lespedeza, Macroptilium, Rhynchosia, Vigna, Clitoria, Cajanus and Macrotyloma were the most successful pasture legume genera but their performance was inferior to that of native species. Cenchrus spp., the only grasses to germinate, survived into the 2nd wet season.
