Description: Change in grazing intensity, usually more intensive. This would require better management of grasslands, including 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 theme items: Agricultural land use (Land use)Land use system (Land use)Natural vegetation (Land use)Animal husbandry (Food)


Associated policy response component

Component: Land and biodiversity policies
Page: Land and biodiversity policies/Agricultural production system

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 size of livestock.

Component: 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.
