About this book

Language: Dutch

A handbook for development and management. The flora of agricultural fields in the Netherlands has deteriorated in recent decades. It turns out that each field is unique as regards soil species, location, infrastructure and cultivation. To successfully restore and manage you have to know your parcels and make many choices. Therefore, Het Akkerboek offers a complete manual for managers.

Which types of field and accompanying soil species exist? How do you revive species-rich fields? What is required from field management, from tillage to sowing, and from manuring to harvesting. How can you prevent field deterioration and how do you make your field suitable for fauna? This book describes:
- types of agricultural fields in the Netherlands with accompanying soil species
- 85 types of agricultural fields (some of which are now extinct)
- images showing life stages and comparable species
- background information about distribution, specific management techniques, and reintroduction
