Economic evaluation of drainage benefits from grassland

Economic evaluation of drainage benefits from grassland

Farm Management 8(4): 186-193

Trials at North Wyke, Devon in 1983-87 compared 6 drained and 6 undrained 1-ha plots. Mean grass yields were 8.50 t OM/ha in undrained plots and 8.77 t in drained plots. Cattle liveweight gain was increased by 11.4% by drainage, with a 31.6% increase in the spring. Drained swards produced more grass yield in the spring, while yield was higher on undrained plots in midsummer.
