Nitrogen management on large organic dairy farms

By J. Eriksen, M. Askegaard and K. Søegaard


Large dairy herds need much grassland near the farm. Utilisation and losses of nitrogen in such grass-intensive crop rotations can be controlled by management: In grassland, grazing days or fertiliser input can be reduced, and following grassland cultivation, a barley whole crop for silage undersown with Italian ryegrass can reduce leaching to a minimum
