Covering 40% of the European agricultural area, grasslands are vitally
important both for agriculture and society. These grasslands serve multiple
functions, including the local provision of fodder for animal husbandry (and
hence high-quality food provision for people), biodiversity conservation,
carbon storage and the provision of ‘traditional’ landscapes that European
citizens appreciate for recreational purposes and cultural heritage.

The future of grassland farming in Europe is in the hands of young farmers.
Compared to other topics, grassland management has often been a weak point of
teaching delivered by agricultural technical schools in several European
countries. The training of future farmers and advisors could thus be
significantly improved, which could lead to better grassland management in the
medium and long terms. For this reason, the European project Inno4Grass
created a syllabus and a set of PowerPoint presentations on practical
grassland management for current and future generations of grassland farmers
and advisors.
