I woul dnot agree with this statement. In many areas of the world, grass is
grown and harvested as (winter) fodder for animals. According to
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Landuse this is tagged as landuse=grass
If the grass is used for grazing, the wiki suggests landuse=meadow

For the the mapper who is not a farming expert, it's often difficult to
distinguish between the two uses. In addition in many cases both uses apply
to the same piece of land at different seasons.
