Grassland (green) total area 32,000 hectares (farm grassland 24,000 hectares (Defra statistics))

Most grassland in Berkshire is used for grass crops and grazing, though there are substantial areas of amenity grassland in and around urban areas and some scattered rough grassland.  98% was assessed as “improved” in TVERC’s habitat mapping.  The distribution of grassland is an indicator of the distribution of grazing animals, though grass crops can be transported considerable distances.
