Figure 8. Map of the area of modified pastures (predominantly sown and fertilized) in Australia 2001 (green pixels) Also shown is the area of irrigated pastures, the largest area of which is either side of the border of southern NSW and Victoria (red pixels). Each pixel (cell) represents about 1000 ha (i.e. a total of 22.1 M ha of dryland sown pastures and 1.2 M ha irrigated sown pastures). This map was used to define the inland limit of sown pastures (see Figure 12).
