Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) establishment after inoculation with different carriers of Ensifer meliloti on five sowing dates
(Lincoln University, 2011)
The effect of sowing date (21/10/10, 9/11/10, 8/12/10, 13/01/11 and 3/02/11) and seed inoculant (ALOSCA®, coated and peat seed) on the establishment and growth of seedling and regrowth ‘Stamina 5’ lucerne (Medicago sativa ...
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 ...
Impact of autumn (fall) dormancy rating on growth and development of seedling lucerne
(Journal of New Zealand Grasslands, 2016)
To quantify the influence of autumn (fall) dormancy (FD) on DM production and phenological development during the seedling phase, three lucerne genotypes with contrasting ratings were grown at Lincoln University, New ...
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 ...
