Case study: Phalaris proves profitable in cracking clay – Peter and Regina Dooley, Warncoort, Victoria
Peter and Regina Dooley run a mixed farming operation near Colac in south- western Victoria. The soils on their basalt landscape vary from loams to heavy, cracking clays, with some rocky areas. The Dooleys were keen to host an EverGraze Supporting Site to see if perennial pastures could be established and made to persist on areas with these difficult soils.
