Additional field(s): Environment & Ecology
English term or phrase: grazing pressure
Definition from IFAD:
The relationship between the number of animal units or forage intake units and the weight of forage dry matter per unit area at any point in time; an animal-to forage relationship. May be expressed as animal units or forage intake units to forage mass (animal units/forage mass at a specific time).

Example sentence(s):
  • An optimum grazing pressure is one in which available forage matches animal needs; this is analogous to the quantity of forage offered daily to animals in confinement when rations are balanced. The Pennsylvania State University
  • The different grazing pressures were obtained through different stocking rates, adjusted every 21 d according to forage mass, predicted forage production rate, and an estimated forage allowance of 10, 15 and 20 kg dry matter (DM) heifer-1 d-1 for high, medium, and low pressures, respectively. American Society of Agronomy
  • Stocking rate and annual average grazing pressure (with or without account for feral animals) did not appear to be, in themselves, good indicators of sustainability. Rather, the sustainability of different areas/systems and the impacts on sustainability of changes in management, e.g. stocking rates, may be assessed better through calculating year-to-year variability of the feed base, and periods of critical grazing pressure. cababstractsplus.org

presiune asupra pășunilor

Definition from Regulament pășunat:
presiune asupra păşunii -– numărul de animale, raportat la o unitate de
suprafaţă de păşune

Example sentence(s):
  • O presiune asupra păşunilor din zona alpină o constituie animalele domestice duse la păscut, dar impactul cel mai mare îl are şederea acestor animale adunate în turme într-un singur loc o perioada mai mare de timp. Urmare a acestei situa ii, pe toate păşunile în jurul adăposturilor pe fostele locuri de înoptare urmare a supraîngrăşării locului se produce deteriorarea covorului vegetal, apari ia de goluri în care se instalează specii invadatoare ca Rumex, Urtica, Veratrum, Polygonum ş.a. şi declanşarea fenomenului de eroziune. - Raport Retezat
