Multi-Species Swards (Part 2)

Historically, diverse species 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 (see Multi Species Swards Part 1). In addition, payments for establishing diverse swards are available in England, through the Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI), under the Improved Grassland Soils Standards, making them more appealing to some farmers. This is the second of two dairy insight publications exploring the use of legumes and herbs in swards, this publication looks at choosing species, establishment and managing diverse leys.
