Farm Table says:

Useful article on grass and legume varieties available in the Northern Territory. Interesting to learn that one grass variety and several legume varieties sown together are easier to manage.

This article provides a listing of all grass and legume varieties that are available and that are suitable for the Northern Territory, where they experience an annual wet season.

Key points were as follows:

  • Seed should be sourced locally where possible to avoid introducing any new species of weeds.
  • Ensure any seed purchased is tested and comes with a seed analysis certificate.
  • Grasses and legumes should be sown together for easy management.
