Tony Albertsen


Location: Vasse Research Station.

In 1989 ninety three lines of a Phalaris arundinacea backcross with P. aquatica, bred by Dr R.N. Oram (CSIRO Canberra) were drill sown into unreplicated 10m single row plots at Vasse Research Station. In addition 7 controls (with two replications) were planted. Similar trials were planted by Mr L. Cransberg (Albany) and Dr R.N. Oram (Bendigo).

The V.R.S. trial was flash grazed with either cattle or sheep during 1989 and 1990.
