|Description:||Change in grassland management, usually more intensive grassland management (expressed as the grazing intensity). This requires for example the use of grass-clover mixtures and fertilisers, bringing the length of the grazing season in tune with the period of grass production, and rotations.|
|Is implemented in:||Agricultural systems|
Associated policy response component
Effects of this policy intervention on components
Component: Agricultural systems
Effect : More intensive grassland management decrease the area needed for grassland, while producing the same amount of grass (and/or feeding the same amounts of livestock).
Effect : HEEFT DIT WEL ECHT EEN IMPACT OP DE LIVESTOCK COMPONENT ZOALS HIER BESCHREVEN?
Component: Terrestrial biodiversity
Effect : Effects biodiversity in two ways: less grazing areas decrease the impact on habitats, while more intensive management or increased grazing intensity icnreases the pressures on biodiversity of the remaining areas.
