Abstract

Experimental studies into the effects of grassland renovation on environmental and agronomic parameters are scarce in the Netherlands. The effects of grassland renovation have been estimated for the three cases of permanent grassland on sand, clay and peat soil, and an additional case for a grass-maize rotation on dry sandy soil. There is need for a futher quantification of the effects of grassland renovation on N cycling in the plant-soil system, with respect to soil type, renovation strategy and crop management
