Pengelly, B.C. and Staples, I.B. (1999) Opportunities for the development of new tropical forage cultivars. Tropical Grasslands, 31 (4). pp. 344-349. ISSN 0049-4763

Over 100 cultivars of grasses and legumes have been released for use in the grazing industries of northern Australia over the past 36 years. However, many opportunities for new pasture plants remain in the Beef, Dairy and Cropping Industries as well as in land rehabilitation. Opportunities also exist for developing cultivars for farming systems of other tropical countries. Given these opportunities, priorities for research need to be developed in partnership with user communities, research providers and funding bodies.
