Descripción de la medida

During drought periods, less cutting and fertilising till the grass is green and able to absorb nutrients again

Comentarios sobre la sostenibilidad

By mowing the grassland less often, the total yields are usually higher than with the normal number of cuttings. Less harvest crossings are therefore necessary which lead to a reduced fuel need, working hours and to less soil compaction. Due to a reduced fertilisation, less ammonia emissons occur. It is however important to cut old dry grass which won't green any more.
