Since writing the article "New pasture legumes for clay soils in dry environments" for the last issue of the Northern Muster some 10,000 ha of Progardes (www.progardes.com.au) has been sown across North, North West and Central Queensland on various land types including: Mitchell Grass Downs; cleared Gidgee/Boree; cleared Blackwood and Brigalow; and Barkly and Gulf land types. Agrimix Pty Ltd and various graziers undertook the planting of Progardes using numerous methods including: aerial seeding into dry native grass (Mitchell grass); aerial seeding into freshly pulled and/or old pulled Gidgee/Boree country; aerial seeding onto a fully cultivated seedbed; aerial seeded onto blade ploughed country,; aerial seeded into burnt country; fully disc cultivated and airseeded; and partially tyne cultivated and airseeded. The results of these various planting methods are pending.
