This new, fully updated and revised edition of Improved Grassland Management covers all aspects of grassland management and is of particular relevance to the UK and the Republic of Ireland, although the principles discussed apply to all temperate grassland zones.

Almost twenty years ago, when the original edition of this book was written by John Frame, issues such as efficiency in the use of nutrients in manures, grassland biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions from ruminant production were either nascent, or of no relevance to mainstream grassland farming. The intervening two decades have seen the introduction of water and, latterly, air quality directives by the EU, cross compliance, the single farm payment, and an ever-increasing need for grassland farmers to be conscious of the economics of their business.

The present edition, which has been thoroughly revised by Scott Laidlaw, covers the full scope of modern grassland management.

About the author

Dr John Frame spent thirty-two years in grassland research and specialist advice at the Scottish Agricultural College. After retirement as Leader of Grassland Studies at the College, until his death in 2006 he was a well known and highly respected national and international grassland consultant.
