PHOTO 7: Adgingbong fills with water 300 mm deep. Here we are relying upon cooch grass and lippia to be dominante ground cover where water sits for maybe 8 weeks of the year. For these short plants to persist occassional grazing is required. PLAN here is to eliminate tall tussock grasses on edge of adgingbong with same mix of cooch grass and lippia. Cattle and sheep are part of this process. Date of Photo: March 2020
