About the Authors
  • The challenges facing grassland agronomists are becoming increasingly complex, with environmental and ethical issues assuming a greater significance alongside more conventional technical aspects. This new expanded edition, with an increased emphasis on systems thinking, has been revised to reflect current concerns, knowledge and practice. As such it addresses the need for a different approach to grassland agronomy, providing novel and provocative material to instruct, stimulate and enthuse the reader.

    • It provides a coherent synthesis of systems thinking in relation to grassland agronomy
    • It has new and highly innovative material which will be provocative for students and their teachers
    • It integrates traditional agronomic knowledge in a startlingly new context

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This view of grassland management as applied ecology is the singular unique strength of the book." Agriculture, Ecosystem and Environment

    "A successful synthesis of science and systems thinking has been achieved in a very compact form." Agricultural Systems

    "The use of across-the-world examples enhances the applicability of the principles described." Journal of Agriculture and Animal Sciences

    "...an excellent reference, textbook, or guide for the forage professional, the best I have read promoting looking at forages in a systematic manner...It challenges researchers, extension specialists, consultants, and producers to think of their work as it fits into forage systems on a local or global basis...each chapter cites relevant forage information sources. Many of the chapters could stand alone as excellent literature reviews, their topics are so thoroughly covered." Great Plains Research
