Controlled continuous grazing


  • The present practice of uncontrolled continuous grazing results in depletion of all the desirable species, leaving only week and stunted growth of undesirable species.
  • Controlled grazing even, if it is continuous, can mitigate this effect to a great extent. The grazing is stopped when a certain minimum number of preferred plants are still left with sufficient seed stock.
  • When managed on these lines, the system would permit a progressive development of grassland area.
