Sward enhancement: diversifying grassland by spreading species-rich green hay (TIN063)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

Sward enhancement refers to management techniques which aim to increase the botanical diversity (mainly the wildflower component) of species-poor grassland. Such work can be funded under Environmental Stewardship, in particular Higher Level Stewardship. Spreading species rich green hay is one method of sward enhancement. Other techniques of oversowing, slot seeding and planting pot-grown transplants and plugs are described in separate notes.
