Study finds that multi-species grassland mixtures increase yield stability, even under drought conditions – BiOME Ecology Magazine
In a two-year experiment in Ireland and Switzerland, researchers found a positive relationship between plant diversity and yield stability in intensely managed grassland, even under experimental drought conditions. The results were presented at the British Ecological Society’s annual meeting in Belfast. The benefits of multi-species mixtures were so strong that yields from a mixture of four species …
