Pasture cropping is the sowing of winter cereal crops in rows between summer active perennial pastures as a means of integrating livestock and cropping enterprises to the benefit of both systems. The theory of pasture cropping is that livestock grazes the pastures during summer and autumn, and the cereal crop during winter and early spring, then they are removed so the crop can regenerate and the grain harvested with a minimal trade-off in yield.
