Optimal grazing management to achieve high yields and utilisation of dryland lucerne
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
The pre- and post-grazing dry matter yields from six individual paddocks in a grazed lucerne rotation were compared at Ashley Dene, Lincoln University, over 5 years. The mean annual yield was ~12 000 kg DM/ha and unaffected ...
Lucerne establishment sequences to maximise weed control in ex-Pinus radiata L. plantations
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2007)
Lucerne sown immediately or after different forage crop sequences was investigated as a pasture option for post forestry conversion. In this experiment superphosphate and lime were applied in March 2005 before final seedbed ...
Soil pH, exchangeable aluminium and lucerne yield responses to lime in a South Island high country soil
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2010)
A 2-year field experiment was conducted on a high country brown stony soil in the Lees Valley, North Canterbury. Two forms of lime (‘AgLime’ and ‘Quicklime’) were applied at 4 rates (0, 2, 4 and 8 t/ ha) and plots sown ...
Sub clover, cocksfoot and lucerne combine to improve dryland stock production
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The temporal (seasonal) pattern of dryland pasture and stock production from four cocksfoot based pastures (mixed with balansa, Caucasian, subterranean or white clover), a ryegrass/white clover pasture and a pure lucerne crop ...
Adapting farm systems to a drier future
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2008)
In the Starborough-Flaxbourne area the local farming community, alarmed at the increasing hill slope erosion, set up a soil conservation group. Accelerated erosion was a symptom of the past 12 years of below average rainfall. ...
Understanding the role of spring grazing of lucerne in the Central Otago environment
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2012)
The Lucerne for Lambs Sustainable Farming Fund project used on-farm data and whole-farm modelling to help farmers understand the impact of increasing the amount of grazing dryland lucerne on Central Otago farms. On-farm ...
Yield and botanical composition of lucerne, cocksfoot or ryegrass based pastures over six years
Objective: To quantify annual yield and botanical composition from lucerne, cocksfoot and ryegrass based pastures. The presentation focuses on results from the MaxClover Grazing Experiment and lucerne grazing management ...
The aim of this research was to quantify annual yield and botanical compositionfrom lucerne, cocksfoot and ryegrass based pastures for dryland situations.
Cocksfoot and lucerne productivity in a Pinus radiata silvopastoral system: a grazed comparison
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2001)
Plant and animal production from cocksfoot pasture and lucerne under 10–11 year-old radiata pine trees (200 stems/ha) and from adjacent open pastures (without trees) were measured from the Lincoln University Silvopastoral ...
Pasture and forage options for S.I. hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2011-11-01)
The Lees Valley Farmer’s Group (LVFG) was formed in January 2005 to discuss agronomic issues related to the intensification of Lees Valley and similar farm types throughout the South Island. The initial project terminated ...
