In certain regions, due to small per capita land holding grasslands meadows and forests are the only source of forage. Productivity of grassland particularly in developing countries is low due to lack of knowledge of various biotic and abiotic factors and their interaction, high livestock pressure per unit area, non adoption of any grassland management practices and lack of resources. The book Grassland Techniques and Management gives information on techniques to be adopted for the study of botanical composition, ground cover, forage evaluation, range condition, assessment of grassland production, carrying capacity, livestock unit, seed treatment and soil test which provide basic knowledge of various biotic and abiotic factors affecting grassland production. The details of principles and methodology of various grasslands management practices including reseeding of grasses, introduction of legume, fertilizer application, control of shrubs, grazing management etc. has also been presented. Chapters on fodder trees and browse, forage conservation and herbage quality presents valuable information on various related aspects of grassland improvement and management.
