Cutting or topping a pasture is an essential part of managing grassland. Regular topping helps to maintain a good quality grass sward which has many benefits for both land and animals.
We use a flail on our tractor, the flails mulch the grass rather than simply cutting it, and an integrated shredder bar reduces the grass cuttings even further.
- Helps maintain a good quality grass sward which is key to preventing weeds establishing.
- By reducing the cut grass to small pieces it enables it to breakdown more quickly, feeding the soil and allowing grazing animals back on sooner than conventional topping.
- Is great at preventing weeds such as docks, thistles and ragwort going to seed and proliferating.
- A roller at the back of the mower crushes the grass crowns and encourages the plant to tiller – as well as leaving a smart, tidy finish.
