Situation

The quality of the pasture has declined with constant grasing. The pH in the soil needs to be corrected with lime application to reduce the buttercups and daisies, and the grass needs fertilised to encourage more growth.

Solution

Lime and organic fertiliser will return the fields to good quality pasture without the use of harmful herbicides and chemical fertilisers.
