Grass: 
Its Production & Utilization

Grass:
Its Production & Utilization
edited by Alan Hopkins
Blackwell Science, 2000. 

The third edition of this British textbook on grassland management updates the 1989 edition with new information on the role of grassland in nature conservation and the impact of grassland farming on the environment, along with recent developments in agronomy, nutrition, grazing, and forage preservation.

Editor Alan Hopkins uses the contributions of 23 experts in the field to compile a thick, 440-page volume that covers research, policy developments and new technologies for both agricultural students and professionals.

Reflecting some the key changes in land use and the agri-food industry over the past decade, this edition includes new papers on organic farming, herbage seed production, farm wastes and amenity grass.

While contributors are mostly from Great Britain and their examples primarily British, the findings and principles presented are applicable to temperate grasslands elsewhere.
