About this book

This new edition addresses the need for a different approach to grassland agronomy which incorporates environmental and ethical elements, as well as traditional techniques.

'This view of grassland management as applied ecology is the singular unique strength of the book.' Agriculture, Ecosystem and Environment 'A successful synthesis of science and systems thinking has been achieved in a very compact form.' Agricultural Systems 'The use of across-the-world examples enhances the applicability of the principles described.' Journal of Agriculture and Animal Sciences 'The book can be well recommended to students, teachers and practitioners of agriculture as a general overview of grassland systems as well as looking at those in a new and different light.' Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science
