Evaluation of perennial lupin/cocksfoot pasture relative to lucerne pasture under summer dry conditions
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2016)
The productivity of a perennial lupin/cocksfoot mix was compared to that of lucerne in summer dry conditions at Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand. The pastures were planted in December 2013 and rotationally grazed ...
Potential pasture nitrogen concentrations and uptake from autumn or spring applied cow urine and DCD under field conditions
Nitrogen (N) cycling and losses in grazed grassland are strongly driven by urine N deposition by grazing ruminants. The objective of this study was to quantify pasture N concentrations, yield and N uptake following autumn ...
Premature mammary development in ewe lambs exposed to an oestrogenic lucerne pasture
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
A report of mammary development in 6-month-old ewe lambs grazing lucerne on a commercial farm in North Otago provided an opportunity to investigate the possibility to use this as a tool to detect oestrogenic lucerne pastures. ...
Calculating “Hydrothermal time” to quantify seed germination of tall fescue
The objective of this study was to quantify the combined effects of temperature and moisture on germination of tall fescue seed. Seeds were incubated for up to 50 days at a range of constant temperatures (5-35ºC) and ...
Productivity and composition of perennial lupin pastures in response to six growing rates, lime application and lupin type at Glenmore Station, Lake Tekapo
This study aims to identify the sowing rate necessary to produce lupin dominant and productive pastures in the New Zealand high country under low-moderate fertility, and a regime of late spring/early summer grazing. Blue ...
