The vegetative and reproductive development of balansa clover
(Lincoln University, 2009)
The vegetative and reproductive development of balansa clover (Trifolium michelianum Savi.) were quantified in relation to the environmental drivers of each phenophase in field and controlled environments. In a grazed ...
Understanding constraints to cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata L.) based pasture production
(Lincoln University, 2007)
This research examined the mechanisms by which temperature, water availability and nitrogen (N) affect the dry matter (DM) yield potential of cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata L.) dominant pastures. The experiment was a split ...
Morphological, anatomical, and physiological changes of orchardgrass leaves grown under fluctuating light regimes
(American Society of Agronomy, 2007)
The physiological and anatomical adaptability of pastures growing under trees in silvopastoral systems can alter the efficiency of conversion of energy to dry matter (DM). This study was conducted to determine the effects ...
Effects of alternative grass species on grazing preference of sheep for white clover
(Lincoln University, 2008-09-23)
Despite the importance of a high white clover (Trifolium repens) content in temperate pastoral systems in terms of livestock performance and nitrogen fixation, the proportion of white clover in grass-clover pastures is ...
