Earthworms prejudicial effect on alpine meadows. Agronomical solutions



Revue Suisse d'Agriculture 33(6): 253-259



ISSN/ISBN: 0375-1325

The earthworm Nicodrilus nocturnus is currently colonizing permanent meadows in eastern Switzerland. The large amount of its casts disturbs grassland management. A survey of the affected regions and a comparison between oriental problematic situations and occidental troubleless ones were conducted. In the eastern region, considerable amounts of casts were observed during the first phase of N. nocturnus colonization. After some time, the level goes back to that observed in the Western region.
