This chapter discusses grassland management. The common objectives of grassland management are to: provide the desired sward composition, the specific aim often being to maintain or increase plant species richness; provide the sward height and structure favoured by a desired range of animals; and prevent colonization by scrub and trees. The effects of non-intervention on grasslands; management by grazing, management by cutting or without grazing, management by burning or without grazing, rotational management, soil disturbance; and the use of fertilizers, lime, slurry, and farmyard manure are discussed.

Keywords:   grassland management, grazing, cutting, burning, soil disturbance, fertilizers, lime, slurry, manure
