Summer forage cropping as an effective way to control deep drainage in south-eastern AustraliaA simulation study



Summer forage cropping as an effective way to control deep drainage in south-eastern AustraliaA simulation study



Agriculture, Ecosystems & Environment 125(1-4): 127-136



Excessive drainage of water beyond the root zone of agricultural plants is complicit in causing extensive dryland salinity in southern Australia. Opportunistically sowing summer forage crops within winter cereal rotations could be a flexible means of reducing this deep drainage whilst achieving additional livestock production.
