Pasture dieback is a poorly understood condition that causes limited growth and death of otherwise very productive pastures. The condition has been identified in a range of sown and native grasses across Queensland, causing large losses in production and is a major concern for grazing.

Along with reducing pasture growth, dieback makes grass unpalatable to cattle, and a range of weeds and unwanted plants often move in afterwards, causing erosion and the potential for pest outbreaks. While the condition has been largely coastal, there is evidence the dieback is moving south and west – researchers are unsure what is actually causing the condition.
