AbstractFull Text

Inclusion of legumes in grasslands could enhance N-use efficiency of forage production. Performance of 7 binary grass-legume mixtures was studied to examine companion species with contrasting attributes. Perennial ryegrass (PR) was sown alone and with each of four forage legumes: red clover (RC),...

AbstractFull Text

Enchytraeids (small white earthworms between 3 to 35 mm) are important regulators of nitrogen turnover in grasslands, as their activities accelerate the decomposition and nutrient recycling processes. In this study, the effect of management on species composition, abundance and biomass of the...

AbstractFull Text

In multispecies grasslands the proportion of different herb species may vary considerably due to low competitiveness of some herbs. To examine the possibility for increasing the competitiveness, an experiment with three factors was set up: (1) amount of herb seed (5, 50 or 100%) in a mixture of...

AbstractFull Text

Increasing plant species diversity in grasslands may improve productivity and stability of yields. In a field experiment we investigated the herbage dry matter (DM) yield of two-species swards of perennial ryegrass-white clover (Lolium perenne L.-Trifolium repens L.) and three-species swards of...

AbstractFull Text

The aim was to investigate the micro-mineral profile of herbage as affected by grassland species, cutting time and seasonality and in relation to dairy cow requirements. The different grassland species were grown and harvested in mixtures with one grass and one legume for two growing seasons. The...

Abstract

This study was conducted in Norway during 1998 and 1999 to determine the nitrogen nutrition of organic seed crops of timothy (Phleum pratense), meadow fescue (Festuca pratensis) and smooth bromegrass (Bromus inermis) established in plots planted with spring barley cover crop. Based on a suggestion...

AbstractFull Text

With the aim to reduce N-surplus on pasture a grazing trial with 64 dairy cows was carried out in two 30 days periods in 2004. In the rest of the season the sward was cut for silage. In a 2×2 factorial design, the cows grazed paddocks with two different compressed sward heights, 6 and 10 cm, and...

AbstractFull Text

The present study forms part of a transdisciplinary project evaluating the potential of birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus corniculatus L.) as a forage crop in Sweden, with special reference to its content of condensed tannins (CT). The influence of herbage from mixed swards with approximately 550 g kg-1 dry ...
