The existing framework conditions, such as soil type, climate and system itself (milk cattle, grazing) are analysed and adapted to the system. The lowland moor is mainly used for cutting, as grazing causes considerable damage to the turf.
Decisive for the establishment of this system are the existing framework conditions, which can of course vary depending on the location. The use of grassland is therefore very diverse and not all measures make sense everywhere.
Important keywords are soil type, water management, grass species and climate.

Why it is working
The innovation consists in using the framework conditions and its own resources as efficiently as possible. The partitioning of the area provides maximum efficiency in all areas and is fully adapted to the operational situation.
