459.     Enforcement of custom by injunction.

The general law relating to injunctions applies to agricultural tenancies, including in relation to custom1. A tenant will be restrained by injunction from committing any act of voluntary waste or from acting contrary to the custom of the country. Thus a tenant may be restrained from ploughing up ancient pasture or meadow land2, from sowing pernicious crops3, from carrying away manure4, hay, straw and turnips5, and from damaging hedgerows6, contrary to the custom of the country7.
