Nitrogen fixation and site nitrogen balances of fertilised dryland lucerne (Medicago Sativa L.) at Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand
(Lincoln University, 2014)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) is a high value perennial forage legume. It is deep-tap rooted, has high water use efficiency and is tolerant of drier environments. It produces high quantity and quality dry matter (DM). Yet, ...
The effects of management for aphid control on lucerne production and persistence
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1979)
In the second year of a two year grazing management trial on Wairau Lucerne, plots were grazed under a 3 or 6 weekly rotation. Half of each plot was nard grazed in June to control over wintering aphids. In the spring/autumn ...
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 ...
Pasture and forage options for store lamb and beef production from South Island hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2009-04)
In 2005 the Lees Valley Farmers Group applied for a MAF Sustainable Farming Fund (SFF) Grant to investigate pasture and forage options for the intensification of South Island Hill and High Country. At the beginning of the ...
An evaluation of cocksfoot/lupin pasture as an alternative forage for summer-dry environments
(Lincoln University, 2016-11-14)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the animal and herbage productivity of a perennial lupin/cocksfoot pasture mix when compared with a lucerne pure sward positive control in a summer dry environment, at Lincoln University, ...
Comparison of pasture establishment from a conventional disc drill and a prototype strip seeder drill
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 1991)
Establishment of grasses and legumes drilled in spring with a prototype strip seeder drill or a conventional tripledisc drill were compared on two sites in the presence and absence of paraquat. On the Earnscleugh site, ...
Dryland pasture research
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2012-01)
This report presents the results of dryland pastoral research at Lincoln University. It includes a practical guide to on-farm management for direct grazed lucerne stands which implements current recommendations. It also ...
The effect of spring grazing management on yield, animal liveweight gain and root reserves of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.).
(Lincoln University, 2011)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) is a common pasture legume grown in New Zealand. Rotational grazing is recommended for ensuring stand production and persistence. However, during lambing set stocking ewes and lambs is the ...
Delayed sowing decreased lucerne dry matter yield over two seasons
(New South Wales Department of Primary Industry, 2013-09)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) can be sown in New Zealand from late spring (October) to early autumn (March). In the establishment season, greatest drymatter (DM) yields are normally attained from sowing early and production ...
Growth and development of different lucerne cultivars
(Lincoln University, 2016-11-14)
This dissertation compared lucerne dry matter production from 10 genotypes in irrigated conditions at Lincoln University. First year yields averaged 10 t DM/ha for the establishment year with no differences found among culitvars.
