Murray (LIG 473)
This grass arose out of the successful LIGULE program. It was developed by the NSW Department of Land and Water Conservation (DLWC) through research funded by DLWC and the Meat and Livestock Association, the Land and Water Resources Research and Development Corporation and the Victorian Department of Natural Resources and the Environment.
Murray (LIG 473) was selected from wheat grasses occurring in the wheat-sheep zone and is better adapted to warmer and drier conditions. It has moderate drought tolerance.
