Alternative forage systems for marginal land

The project aims to assess the optimum grass ley mixtures suited to the high rainfall conditions, poor soilquality and low input systems on marginal land within the South Wales Valleys, compared to conventional ryegrass/clover leys.

The project will compare different seed mixtures on three separate farms over a three-year period. By comparing outputs from the project farms, this will provide information on the relative productivity of two very different species mixtures.
