Pastures and grazing management
 

Changes to conventional grazing practices which enhance ecosystem function have implications far beyond changes in botanical composition. Of particular importance from a rangeland health perspective, is the effect of appropriate grazing management on the infiltration of rainfall and the water-use efficiency of plants, drought survival, biodiversity, organic matter levels, soil biota, soil structure and the building of new topsoil.
