Native Fodder Trees
Current Research Focus
We aim to do this by influencing/optimising water, natural nitrogen and microclimate to influence biomass accumulation whilst offering high-value fodder reserves 365 days per year, particularly affecting fodder offerings in times of drought when needed most.
Fodder shrubs increase the nitrogen fertility for plants growing around the drip line.
By creating hedge-rows, fodder shrubs can provide wind protection for the inter-row and a zone of rainfall infiltration around the roots, increasing overall capture, storage and recovery of every drop of rain.
This system then becomes the most drought-proofed grazing system available and an absolute powerhouse for carbon sequestration.
