Mimicking nature with pasture cropping and no-kill cropping
4 Aug 2009
Description

For some years now pasture croppers Rick and Brenda and Angus and Lucy Maurice have been creating a diverse ecosystem on "Gillinghall", their 2,500 hectare cattle, sheep and cropping property NE of Wellington. Using zero disturbance planting techniques crops of wheat, barley, cereal rye and oats are sown into perennial native pastures with the aim of mimicking natural landscape function where annuals and perennials support each other. This process works closely with nature, providing diverse and sustainable profit opportunities without reliance on synthetic or chemical inputs.
