It is said that topography, geology and biology make out the foundation for plant production, whereas climate and geography determine crop types accordaing to location, along with expected yields.
Grass-based livestock production is therefore the backbone of Norwegian agriculture. A substantial part of the country’s home-grown grain is used as fodder due to crop quality.
One of the advantages of the cool climate is that it limits the spread of plant diseases and pests.
