Grassland Productivity.

The yield from grassland leys decline over time. This is due to less productive “weed grasses” invading the sward, an increase in broad leaved weeds, flooding, poaching etc. The introduction of new improved grass species to these paddocks, through an on-going pasture renewal programme, markedly improves their productivity and consequently total farm productivity and profitability.

Thinking Long Term.

The Nufarm Grassmanship programme has been designed to provide you with information on management practices that will help your farm’s long-term productivity and profitability. It outlines grassland renewal programmes and provides advice on “best choice” products for the most commonly occurring weed and pest problems in UK grassland and how to maximise the productivity of your grass.

Good Grass Matters.

How much grass you grow determines how much stock you can carry. Higher grassland productivity means higher stock numbers, higher yields and higher profitability per hectare.

Weeds and pests in pasture compete for space, light, soil moisture, soil nutrients and reduce pasture productivity resulting in poor quality pasture. The purer the stand of high quality grassland, the better your productivity. This is why it is important to have a well planned grassland management programme which is reviewed continuously.
