Abstract/Contents:Suitable machinery for soil preparation is discussed. For sub-alpine slopes the seeding mixture recommended comprises a maximum of 10 plant species, of which the principal 4 are Festuca rubra, F. pratensis, Agrostis tenuis and Phleum pratense. A fertilizer, preferably organo-mineral, is essential. Above a height of 2,500 meters seeding generally gives poor results and turfing is advised. After sowing a straw mulch is laid and sprayed with bitumen emulsion. Seeds present in the straw give rise to a cereal nurse crop for the newly sown grasses. The average requirements per 100 sq.meter are 2-3 kg seed, 5-10 kg complete fertilizer, 50 kg straw and 50 1.25% bitumen emulsion. Prolific growth in the first year necessitates autumn mowing and protection from grazing cattle is essential during the first 2 years.
