Ley-farming, Austrian term for Egart(en)wirtschaft, the alternate growing of crops and grass in a field (approximately 30.000 hectares) in high and moist locations. The remaining roots of the ploughed swards reduce erosion, and during the years of grass growing the weeds covering the fields are expected to diminish. With natural pastures the forage area is cultivated by natural grass regeneration, in ley grass farming this happens by seeding.
