The reversion of arable land to permanent grassland is a major area of work funded through Environmental Stewardship. This note provides guidance on reversion to create a species-rich sward comprising species, in particular wildflowers, characteristic of semi-natural grassland communities. Guidance on the selection of suitable sites for arable reversion to species-rich grassland and the establishment of a species-rich sown sward is given in other Technical Information Notes.
