The effect of plant arrangement and population on the growth and seed yield of Phaseolus vulgaris cv. ’Sanilac’
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1980)
Less than 10% of New Zealand's annual requirement for dry seed of Phaseolus vulgaris is grown in the country, the remainder being imported from North America. In a population trial in Canterbury in 1976, Goulden obtained ...
Some effects of ethrel on factors affecting yield in Zephyr barley
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1972)
Zephyr barley was originally introduced privately to New Zealand as a feed barley. It was included in both malting and feed grain trials by the Field Research Section of the Department of Agriculture for the first time ...
The influence of cultivar and environment on the relationship between flour protein content and grain yield in wheat
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1985)
Two field experiments were conducted on different soil types and locations in Canterbury during the 1981/82 and 1982/83 growing seasons. Genetic variability in grain yield and flour protein content (protein content) of ...
Effect of urinary nitrogen, dairy shed effluent and nitrogen fertiliser on nitrate leaching from a pasture soil
(Lincoln University, 1999)
Environmental concerns over nitrate-N contamination of surface and groundwater have led to a number of studies on nitrate-N leaching from grasslands. Most studies of nitrate-N leaching loss from grassland have focused ...
Interactions between pasture species and management and their implications for evaluating perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) cultivars in dairy systems
(Lincoln University, 2016-07-19)
An index to rank perennial ryegrass cultivars based on their relative economic benefit to pasture-based dairy systems, has been developed in New Zealand (Chapman et al., 2016; DairyNZ) in recent years. Performance values ...
