    OPICO Limited is the largest independent distributor of agricultural machinery with over five decades of experience and knowledge of the trade.. The machinery range includes gas and diesel batch grain dryers, large grassland range of machines, post hole diggers and Avadex applicators, plus many more. This study aimed at identifying optimal sward conditions for successful establishment of red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) through sod-seeding two typical Norwegian grassland systems dominated by timothy (Phleum pratense L.) and perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.), respectively. A total of four sod-seeding trials were implemented, two in late summer (SUM) and two in spring (SPR), one for.

    The potential for better use of grasslands to reduce production costs in livestock farming has also been underestimated. To cope with the challenges and better capitalise on the advantages of grasslands, farmers need dedicated innovations that help them improve grassland economic per - formance. Grasslands comprise more than a quarter of the Earth's land surface. In addition to supporting a wide range of vertebrates such as domestic livestock and a variety of games species, grassland is the natural habitat for a wide range of invertebrate species, and this book considers those which occur in grassland and their impact on soil fertility and herbage growth.

    Quality grass silage starts with good crop nutrition 12 March To understand the difference that making good quality grass silage can have on a dairy farm, we can compare the cost of achieving similar levels of milk output by balancing a diet using either a good or poorer quality silage. The latest grassland fertilser and nutrition advice from the Yara agronomists. Managing spring fertiliser and slurry applications for grazing Following a particularly wet winter fewer nutrients will still be available for spring grass so here is our advice on managing spring fertiliser and slurry applications.

Transformations of N in grasslands represent inputs of N that occur through the application of fertilizers and manures, the deposition of excreta from grazing animals, the fixation of N 2 by microorganisms, and the deposition of ammonia and nitrate from the atmosphere.
