Presentation: Yield gaps estimated for current crop production have received little attention in grassland science. This paper provides a coherent approach for quantifying yield gaps in grasslands, addressing the specific methodological challenges. A preliminary assessment of yield gaps in the Netherlands and the Rogaland region in Norway shows relative yield gaps, i.e. between water limited yields and actual yields, of 24 and 37%, respectively.
