Comments on sustainability

Rotational grazing managament plans in semiarid context have been demostrated very possitive because it impact on soil and grassland production. Even though, it is a "new" granzing managment tecnique for most of farmers. Because of this, the main constraint for its implementation is the lack of knowledge at farm level and the scarcity of farms which are already implementing.
