1.04 - Rainfall to Pasture Growth
The MLA Rainfall to Pasture Growth Outlook Tool presents the actual rainfall and indexes of soil moisture and pasture growth for the past 9 months, and a 3-month outlook for over 3,300 locations across southern Australia.
Because the tool covers such a diverse range of soil and pasture types across southern Australia, it provides an index of potential pasture growth, not a prediction of actual growth.
The pasture growth index should be interpreted in light of local knowledge about species, soil type, fertiliser history and aspect.
