Prospects for grassland utilization in eastern europe

Prospects for grassland utilization in eastern europe

Netherlands Journal of Agricultural Science 32(3): 175-192

The economic importance of grassland can only be analyzed adequately by studying grassland from its agricultural, economic and political aspects. This study looks at the influence of these aspects on grassland production. The economic importance of grassland in Eastern Europe is less pronounced than in Western Europe. Various reasons which may account for this were given. The contribution of grassland to food supply is limited. In Eastern European not only do diets contain a smaller portion of grassland products, but grass is also a less important input for animal feed. Grassland does not play an important role in Eastern European agriculture. Little land is under grass and low yields point to natural grassland farming. Ecological circumstances are not the only explanation for this situation. The existence of large scale animal production systems, a lack of flexibility in farm management (especially with respect to sanitation and animal feeding practices and the subtantial political influence on prices and production plans) can also explain why grassland production in Eastern Europe is only modestly developed. There is a need for more research on efficient use of available resources for grassland production.
