Multi-Species Swards (Part 1)

The terms ‘herbal ley’ and multi-species swards’ are often used synonymously. They typically refer to temporary grasslands made up of a mix of grass, legume and herb / flower species. Historically, these swards were the domain of specialist systems. However, the benefits of planting a diverse mix of species make them a valuable resource for many farmers. This is the first of two dairy insight publications exploring the use of legumes and herbs, their benefits as well as key aspects for consideration when growing multi-species swards.

Issued 17th March 2022
