This video provides an overview of case study 4, which focuses on cash crops grazed through innovative win-win partnership between two professional categories, which previously did not have any relationships: sheep farmers and arable farmers.

For sheep farmers, it is an opportunity to support the development of sheep production with a new, quality forage. For arable farmers, the practice could have numerous advantages, including improved soil fertility, reduced pressure from pests, non-mechanical destruction of cash crops, incorporation of organic matter, and a better image of arable farmers.
