Legumes for hill country
(Lincoln University., 2012-04-03)
The booklet presents the preliminary results of a TIFF funded “MAXClover’ dryland hill country legume experiment at Clarence Bridge, Marlborough. It also includes a practical guide to on-farm management for direct grazed ...
Can salt increase oversowing success on south facing hill country?
(Lincoln University, Agriculture Group., 2006-11)
Salt application is a tool for pasture management and improvement in the hill/high country that could be used together with other methods such as herbicides, seeding, sub-division, grazing management and fertiliser.
Seed potato physiological age and crop establishment
Seed potato physiological age progressively advances with time (chronological age), but is also influenced by temperature during storage. In this work, different combinations of constant temperatures (2, 8 and 20°C) were ...
How does defoliation management impact on yield, canopy forming processes and light interception of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops?
The frequency of defoliation is the major management tool that modulates shoot yield and the accumulation of C and N root reserves in lucerne crops. A fully irrigated, two year old lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crop was ...
Defoliation frequency and season affected radiation use efficiency and dry matter partitioning to roots of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops
Radiation use efficiency (RUE), and subsequent partitioning between shoots and roots were investigated for ‘Grasslands Kaituna’ lucerne crops grown in the cool temperate climate of Canterbury, New Zealand. Crops were ...
Growth and phenological development patterns differ between seedling and regrowth lucerne crops (Medicago sativa L.)
This study compared physiological responses of fully irrigated seedling and regrowth lucerne crops (Medicago sativa L.) grown under similar environmental field conditions. Measurements occurred for 2-4 years after sowing ...
An explanation of yield differences in three potato cultivars
(American Society of Agronomy, 2016-07)
Under ideal growing conditions, yield is the product of intercepted photosynthetically active radiation (PARi) and its conversion efficiency to dry matter (radiation use efficiency, RUE). For potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) ...
Two annual legume species and their selection of nodule occupants
With its intensive animal production, New Zealand relies heavily on legume and ryegrass dominated pastures. Legumes in association with their rhizobial symbionts fix nitrogen and provide high quality forage. Little is known ...
Relationships between dry matter yield and height of rotationally grazed dryland lucerne
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2016)
Between 2009/2010 and 2014/2015 a total of 711 destructive paired samples of total dry matter yield (kg DM/ha) and lucerne height were taken from a grazed dryland lucerne monoculture experiment at Ashley Dene, Canterbury, ...
Strain diversity of rhizobia occupying lucerne and Caucasian clover nodules in New Zealand high country soil
A poster summarising a study that aims to quantify nodulation and genetic diversity of strains recovered from lucerne and Caucasian clover, grown in soils of low pH and high aluminium.
