Organic grasslands have long been recognized for their provision of ecosystem functions and services and this may be further increased by inclusion of appropriate herb species. Inclusion of herb species in grasslands has in the present experiment shown to increase yield stability. Furthermore, the data presented here has indicated some potential of species known to have deeper and denser rooting systems to increase belowground biomass, an important asset for C sequestration in grasslands
