2014/2015 pasture trial – Waroona

At Waroona in the Peel region of Western Australia in 2014, 12 by 1m square wire cattle cages were placed at random to evaluate the effects of Hibrix pasture treatment combined with 50kg/ha of super phosphate versus the growers standard fertiliser usage of 100kg/ha of super phosphate.

The Hibrix treated plots produced significantly higher amounts of dry matter without any reduction in pasture quality. On average Hibrix increased the pasture biomass yield by 34% across the farm. The protein content and metabolisable Energy (Mj/kg Dm) were significantly higher in the Hibrix treatments. Full version of the report available
