The growth and production of well managed irrigated pasture is likely to increase under a changing climate. This opportunity can be maximised by improved pasture management practices and sowing summer-active pasture species into cool-season pasture. Rainfall projections indicate a slight increase in winter rainfall, therefore allowing greater opportunities for harvesting runoff water for irrigation supplies.
