1. Chicory and Plantain Programme

    The Chicory and Plantain programme of work aimed to determine milk production responses to supplementing a pasture-based diet with chicory or plantain in summer, and how grazing management affected the growth and quality of these herbs, as well as their persistence.

  2. Forage herbs for summer feed

    Ryegrass growth can be seriously limited in areas prone to summer dry conditions without irrigation. Are there other forage species that could be integrated into farming systems to fill the summer feed gap?

  3. Plantain

    Plantain is highly palatable to animals, establishes rapidly, is pest tolerant and has a high mineral content.

  4. Tararua Plantain Project

    A project helping unconsented farmers keep on top of nitrogen leaching.
