The benefits of sward renewal 1 the benefits of sward renewal philip creighton1, michael o’donovan2 and laurence shalloo2 grassland science research department animal & grassland research and innovation centre teagasc athenry1 and moorepark2 introduction grassland in ireland including rough grazing accounts for over 90% of agricultural land use. All sward renewal methods evaluated were equally as effective as the conventional method of grassland reseeding with the diq rejuvenation method intermediate as measured in terms of dm yield and prg tiller density. Research focused on diverse-sward persistence is important to reduce ongoing establishment and maintenance costs, while also ensuring that the benefits of these pastures for production, profit, and reduced n loss are enduring.
Tion of the sward can become a limiting factor to production  as there is a high cost associated with the sward renewal process, considerable benefit must be gained to make it a viable undertaking  there are  few published data directly comparing existing old permanent pasture to reseeded swards under a grazing sys-tem.

Important that the sward is grazed tightly if minimum cultivation techniques are to be used as surface trash will not be buried some surface trash will remain and as this thrash (dead organic matter) decays it releases organic acids which may inhibit seed germination applying about 2 ton of lime/acre before cultivation will help neutralise this effect. Why renew more pasture in this section you’ll learn about the benefits of pasture renewal, and why the upfront costs pay off lamb live weight gain over 18 weeks averaged 83g per day compared to 135g per day on renewed pasture (source, benefit analysis/lit review, page 22, ) leafier sward, with fewer seed heads produced less dead.
Join special guest dr kathy sward, phd, mph, ryt-500 as she presents the phsyiological issues of autoimmune conditions and the scientifically based mind-body benefits of yoga therapeutics this workshop is especially designed for those with chronic pain or health conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, diabetes, lupus, chronic fatigue, and many other autoimmune health concerns.
Method, the old sward should be burned off using glyphosate (roundup) 10-14 days prior to cultivation to allow enough time for the active ingredient of the spray to be carried throughout the plant to ensure adequate kill after sowing, the seedbed should be rolled to “press-in” the seeds and ensure good seed-soil contact.
