|About the Book|
The management of grassland and its role in the countryside has changed considerably during the 15 years since the first edition of Grass was published. The book has therefore been completely reorganised and rewritten to reflect these developments and the corresponding changes to the undergraduate curriculum. The emphasis will continue to be the agricultural management of grassland and will include recent developments in agronomy, nutrition, grazing, forage preservation, and the changing nature of farm economics in relation to changes in the basis for farm support. The scope of the book will reflect recent policy and legislative changes affecting grassland and will therefore include the role of grassland in nature conservation and landscape, grassland and amenity uses, the impact of grassland farming on the environment, and grass in organic farming.
