Abstract

Grassland management for organic farmers.

Abstract

This book with ten chapters is a practical manual on all aspects of organic grassland management and presents advice backed up by scientific explanation. It is aimed primarily for organic farmers, agricultural students, and organic advisers and consultants. However, it will also be useful for the ever-increasing number of non-organic farmers wishing to move towards a low-carbon, clover-based grassland system. The book also includes a discussion on making the most of clover and soil nitrogen mineralization, the role of herbs and the efficient recycling of manures. Further, the book also covers reducing weed invasion, clean grazing systems for worm control, efficient grazing and conservation, and minimizing the environmental impact of grassland.
