Improvement of pastures through planting perennial legumes, cereals and grasses and creating seed banks. The purpose is to restore the degraded area for later use as a pasture, to secure perennial grass and cereal seed production, and to improve pasture productivity in other areas. Establishment and maintenance activities include fencing the area, ploughing, sowing the cover crops in the spring, and mowing in the autumn.
