- ... Calcareous grasslands are highly biodiverse semi-natural habitats. A particular challenge to European calcareous grassland management in recent years has been the increasing dominance of the competitive grass Brachypodium pinnatum. B. pinnatum is difficult to control by traditional means but selective herbicides offer a potential alternative.We trialled five selective herbicides on two levels of B ...
