Download Identifying non-agricultural and agricultural plant species with antimethanogenic properties
This project addressed an urgent need of the livestock industries for cost-effective methods of reducing methane emissions by ruminants grazing pasture. The predominance of pasture in the diet of ruminants in NZ presents some specific challenges for mitigation of methane production. A forage-based solution, while elusive to date, could provide a simple, cost-effective solution for a significant proportion of ruminant livestock in New Zealand.
