Grazing intensity effects of sheep on the growth of some plant species grown on sandy soil in a semi-arid region. A case study in Inner Mongolia, China

Nippon Sochi Gakkaishi = Journal of Japanese Society of Grassland Science 40(3): 239-245

Grazing intensity effects of sheep on the growth of some plant species grown on sandy soil in a semi-arid region. A case study in Inner Mongolia, China

A grazing experiment with sheep was started in Aug. 1992 at Korqin on sandy land in Nei Menggu, China. Three months later, the effects of grazing intensity on the growth of dominant plant species were assessed. All 7 plant species investigated were clearly influenced by sheep. In particular plant height was shortened at heavy grazing intensity.
