Sustainable Production Systems and System Analysis

The objective of this sub-programme is to undertake research on evaluating relevant technologies emerging from other programme and sub-programme areas in integrated whole-farm production systems (including clover based-systems).

Potential Impact Indicators:

  • Optimum grass-based systems within various constraints.
  • Higher profit grass-based systems of animal production.
