Adding diversity to leys with the introduction of legumes and herbs is increasingly being recognised as a component of good agricultural practice, and it can also increase the overall performance of a sward.

Diversity will mean the sward contains plant types with different growth patterns, allowing better use of natural resources above and below the ground. This can create greater resilience to conditions (e.g. drought tolerance) and an increase in biological activity around the roots, to the benefits of soil health.

Great plant activity will increase the carbon capture capacity of the sward, whilst leguminous herbs will provide the added benefit of nitrogen fixation, adding valuable fertility by converting atmospheric nitrogen into a valuable soil nutrient.
