Abstract

Long term studies (1989-) on an organic dairy farm show decreasing topsoil concentrations of extractable phosphorus (P-AL), and a low P surplus on farm level. The average P-AL value, 100 mg kg-1 dry soil is still above optimal (70 mg), but has decreased by more than 50% since 1989. Perennial ley...

AbstractFull Text

In Finland milk and beef contribute 50% of the agricultural gross return. The growing season is short, 125-180 days, and therefore the indoor period plays a major role relative to the grazing season. This leads to high capital costs for production (winter-proof housing systems, forage and slurry...

AbstractFull Text

An organic crop rotation system designed for supplying all feed to a herd of dairy cattle was run during 1993-2006 in Central Norway. During the second course of rotation (2003-2006) the yields of forage (two years with ley) and grain crops (barley and oats with peas) from the system were estimated ...

AbstractFull Text

Whole-crop silages of oats, six-rowed barley and two-rowed barley, harvested at heading (H), early milk (EM) and early dough (ED) stages of maturity, were fed to thirty-two heifers of the Swedish Red breed in a change-over experiment.
