If you are planning to buy a condo in the area, you may want to consider The Botany at Dairy Farm. This development is surrounded by lush greenery and embraces nature. It was built on the outskirts of a former dairy farm, so it blends in with the landscape. You can also find a primary school nearby.
Plant species richness
The researchers examined plant species richness in fields from both organic and conventional dairy farms, and found that their diversity was similar. They found that 31% of the original 65 species of vascular plants and 27 new species were present. In addition, the soil nutrients contained higher concentrations of nitrate, ammonium, and phosphate than in the surrounding farmland. These differences were attributed to the presence of natural drainage channels.
The results of this research demonstrate the need for the conservation of biodiversity in agricultural production. The EU Biodiversity Strategy 2030 requires agricultural producers to protect biodiversity and understand the trade-offs between food production and conservation. Researchers evaluated the implications of different conservation scenarios for dairy production and biodiversity in a case study region in the Netherlands. The research included a comparison of baseline and targeted conservation scenarios on land use and protein yield, as well as the effects of each on biodiversity.
The results show that species richness and diversity are highly correlated after six weeks. However, they do not correlate directly with each other. The differences between species richness and diversity are due to resource axes. Additionally, trophic group richness does not capture the diversity of trophic strategies in a food web, and this causes the species to separate.
Effects of fertilisation type
This study investigated the effects of different fertilisation types on botany at a dairy farm. Specifically, it looked at the effect of nitrogen on plant species density and ANPP. The results showed that nitrogen added to soil increased ANPP by 50% and decreased species density by 30%. The magnitude of the response varied depending on the site and species within it.
Plants in fertilised swards showed greater CO2 responsiveness than forbs. This effect may be linked to the increased stomatal conductance of grasses. However, the overall trends observed in both fertilised and control plots were similar.
Grass management involves sustaining relatively consistent levels of dense herbage (high energy and DM). These growth rates must be maintained throughout the grazing season. However, the rate of forage growth varies depending on seasonal conditions, temperature, water and nutrient supply. Additionally, the feed intake of a given herd can vary depending on the stage of lactation. It is therefore important to balance the supply of forage with changes in the size of the herd.
