Aspång, Hanna, 2004. Hur bedöms vallens avkastning? . First cycle, G2E. Alnarp: SLU, Other



Grassland is a great part of Swedish agriculture and there is a demand of what the grassland yield is in practice. To be able to control the economic of the milkproduction it is important for the farmer to know how big quantities of pasture there is to use during the year.

The work is based on interviews of 22 farmers from southern part of Sweden. Their area of grassland fluctuate between 16 up to 360 hectares. The questionnaire content 32 questions.

The most common way to weight the green plant material is to drive over a scale, and to measure the dry extract with your own gauge. It takes in average two minutes to
weight one load of green plant material. The pressure of the soil in grassland farming is also an important question. Almost all the farmers are aware of this and uses good tire equipment and drives during good weather conditions.

The loss after storage can only be measured after storage through weighing. These farmers who does that means that the loss is between 10 to 20 %.

The yield of the grassland is very interesting and fluctuates between 5.5 – 15 ton per hectare. This depends of the location of the farms, how it weighs, measures and
estimates. Every farm have their specific condition so the farmer have to adjust after that.
