Ploughing up meadow land is prima facie waste, and will be restrained even though there is no express covenant in the lease against it1; but if the ploughing is done for the purpose of ameliorating the meadow, and does in fact ameliorate it, the act may be justified2. The restriction on ploughing ancient pasture is the same as on meadow3. So far as tenancies governed by the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 are concerned, the statutory right of freedom of cropping extends only to arable land4.
