Summary

Large dairy herds need much grassland near the farm. Utilisation and losses of nitrogen in such grass-intensive crop rotations can be controlled by management: In grassland, grazing days or fertiliser input can be reduced, and following grassland cultivation, a barley whole crop for silage undersown with Italian ryegrass can reduce leaching to a minimum.
