Restoration of Grasslands

Sowing with commercial mixtures was carried out also on abandoned fields in Bílé Karpaty (White Carpathians). In order to maintain the character of the landscape and the phenomenon of flowering meadows, regional mixtures consisting of indigenous species of grasses and herbs have been developed.

Ivana Jongepierová came up with the idea of renewal of White Carpathians' meadows and put it into practice. Currently, Karel Prach and Klára Řehounková in collaboration with Ivana Jongepierová are engaged in renewal of these meadows (see Scientific Publications: Prach et al. 2013).
