Hurley Pasture Model: grassland production and its environmental impacts
The following are examples of where the Hurley Pasture Model has been used to describe the effects of some major management ‘variables’ on the balance of food production and environmental impacts (GHG emissions, C sequestration, and nitrogen releases). Details of how the analyses were run, and all associated references can be found in our published papers and book chapters, notably:
