This report reviews the literature and previous research, to determine the potential for integrating forage shrubs into farming enterprises in low rainfall south-eastern Australia. The report focuses on the 250-650 mm rainfall zone which encompasses the drier mixed-farming belt (grazing and cropping). The review addresses the distribution of forage shrubs, their production and environmental roles, as well as their economic potential.

The report will be of particular interest to farm managers, agricultural and environmental researchers, investors and policy-makers with an interest in the role of forage shrubs in agricultural practices and the environment.
