This study was completed at Manbulloo Research Station, southwest of Katherine. It investigated the impact of numerous fire regimes (unburnt, early dry and late dry burnt) and nutritional supplements on cattle production.
The study is similar to that of Andrew (1986) in that:
The results of this study are similar to those of Andrew (1986): - Davidson found that burning pasture was of most benefit to cattle in the late dry season. This is because fire from the previous season promoted high quality grass regrowth for cattle grazing whilst spelling of unburnt pasture enabled heavily grazed patches to recover. Both Davidson's and Andrew’s (1986) results clearly indicate that rotational burning may be an effective land management tool for monsoon tall grass pastures.
