Floodwater affected pastures in Richmond
Greater Sydney Local Land Services will host a free flood recovery workshop focused on pasture recovery and fodder options in Richmond next week.

Facilitated by Technical Specialist in pastures and forage and former NSW DPI District Agronomist, Neil Griffiths, participants will hear expert advice and insight into all aspects of pasture recovery and livestock feed options post flood.

Topics covered on the day will include:

  • pastures that might survive a flood 
  • differences between spring, summer, autumn and winter floods 
  • replanting- how, when and what to plant?
  • how to sow- seeding rates and fertilizer 
  • weeds after a flood 
  • cautions for pasture improvement 
  • using and buying hay or silage after a flood

An interactive event featuring a flood paddock walk and opportunities for questions and discussion, the workshop is open to landholders, industry and community members impacted by the recent flooding emergency.

The workshop will be held on Thursday, 15 April 2021 at the Greater Sydney Local Land Services Demonstration Farm, 40 Edwards Rd, Richmond Lowlands.

Cost is free but registration is essential, register online

This project is supported by Greater Sydney Local Land Services through funding from the Australian Government's National Landcare Program.
