Grassland Management for Organic Farmers                                                                                                           David Younie

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

Available at BGS Members £18, non members £23

Both books can be purchased through our online shop or by contact the BGS office on 02476 696600. Postage is included in the above price.
