The strategy and tactics developed in this research combined with future research investigating long-term increases in the population of perennial grasses can have a wide application across south eastern Australia where farmers require low-cost methods to improve the perennial grass content of their pastures. Useful species are present in many of those areas and the principles developed here and through future research can be adapted to other environments. A decision support chart was developed to both summarise the results and to guide farmers and their advisors in using the knowledge now available to better manage perennial grass initial recruitment within existing pastures.
