|Module Title||CROP PRODUCTION - GRASSLAND|
|Co-ordinator||Dr Iwan Owen|
Aims of the module
It is intended that this module will introduce students to the concepts and principles of grazing and forage conservation and develop the skills necessary to appraise grazing and forage conservation systems. It will introduce a range of alternative forages to grass, which will enable students to appraise and devise whole farm grassland and forage production and utilisation plans.
On completion of the module, students will be able to:
. describe the processes of grazing and forage conservation
. identify and appraise grazing and forage conservation systems and their components
. integrate grazing and forage conservation requirements and systems to create an integrated grass and forage management plan
