Growth and development of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) crops after different cool season storage
(Lincoln University, 2015)
Growth and development of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) crops after different cool season storage. Tuber yield variation has been attributed to seed potato physiological age in numerous studies on potato. Seed potato ...
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 ...
Selection of sub clover cultivars for New Zealand dryland pastures
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
New Australian-bred cultivars of subterranean (sub) clover with high levels of hardseededness are being promoted in New Zealand based on their superior performance in Australia. These new cultivars may not be suited to ...
Dry matter and sheep production of four dryland tall fescue-clover pastures 4-6 years after establishment
(New Zealand Grassland Association Inc., 2015)
Effects of tall fescue cultivar (‘Advance’ and ‘Flecha’) and clover species (white and subterranean (sub) clovers) combinations on pasture dry matter (DM) and sheep production were assessed in years four (2011/12), five ...
Caucasian clover responses to fertiliser, lime and rhizobia inoculation at Lake Heron Station, Canterbury
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2014)
The agronomic performance of Caucasian clover in high country grasslands was the subject of two experiments at Lake Heron Station, Canterbury. In the first experiment, Caucasian clover was direct drilled into an undeveloped ...
Identification of pasture mixtures that maximise dry matter yield
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2017)
A mixture experiment was conducted to identify an optimal pasture seed mixture that maximised dry matter (DM) yield under irrigated, sheep-grazed conditions inmid-Canterbury, New Zealand. Nineteen seed mixtures were created ...
Soil acidity and aluminium in South Island high and hill-country: New data and future needs
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-19)
Soil extractable aluminium (A1) concentrations can have a strong impact on the establishment, growth and persistence of pasture legumes. This has become clear in New Zealand high and hill-country, where legumes are scarce ...
Sheep performance on perennial lupins at Sawdon Station, Lake Tekapo
A three-year trial compared the performance of Merino ewes grazing on a perennial lupin pasture with a control flock run predominantly on lucerne pastures at Sawdon Station, Lake Tekapo.
Phylogenetic and functional potential links pH and N₂O emissions in pasture soils
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-10-26)
Denitrification is mediated by microbial, and physicochemical, processes leading to nitrogen loss via N₂O and N₂ emissions. Soil pH regulates the reduction of N₂O to N₂, however, it can also affect microbial community ...
Characterization of grain-size distribution, thermal conductivity, and gas diffusivity in variably saturated binary sand mixtures
(Soil Science Society of America on behalf of Geological Society of America, 2018)
Characterization of differently textured porous materials, as well as different volumetric porous media mixtures, in relation to mass and heat transport is vital for many engineering and research applications. Functional ...
