Pasture recovery after bushfires


The effect of bushfires on both annual and perennial pastures is variable.

Pasture damage will depend on the heat of the fire, the type and vigour of the pasture, soil fertility and seasonal conditions before and after the fire.

This Primefact discusses the effects of fires of various intensities on particular pasture types, as well as the management of burnt areas.
