Mean (± standard deviation, SE) of accumulated sediment per millimetre of rain fallen during the summer season (a), and mean (±SE) net summer sediment accumulation during the study period (2010–2014) (b) in water run-off paths with branch barriers (branch barriers), 3 m upstream of branch barriers (upstream) and in run-off paths without branch barriers (control); under different grazing managements: winter (a 1-ha temporary enclosure in which grazing was excluded until winter season, when it was grazed with a stocking rate adjusted to annual forage availability), and continuous (a 1-ha paddock that remained open to grazing throughout the year with a stocking rate of 0.16 AU ha−1). Different lowercase letters showed significant differences for grazing management × branch barriers interaction (ɒ = 0.05). Different uppercase letters indicated significant differences between levels of one factor (ɒ = 0.05)
