Confirmation of co-denitrification in grazed grassland
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015-11-30)
Pasture-based livestock systems are often associated with losses of reactive forms of nitrogen (N) to the environment. Research has focused on losses to air and water due to the health, economic and environmental impacts ...
Sampling methods for clover species in grazed pastures to diagnose mineral deficiencies
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2019-11-04)
Diagnosis of clover nutrient status is important for legume-based pasture systems. The protocols for sample collection and setting of nutrient guidelines are ill-defined. This research quantified how nutrient concentrations ...
Storing carbon in leaf lipid sinks enhances perennial ryegrass carbon capture especially under high N and elevated CO₂
(Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society for Experimental Biology, 2020-04-06)
By modifying two genes involved in lipid biosynthesis and storage [cysteine oleosin (cys-OLE)/diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase (DGAT)], the accumulation of stable lipid droplets in perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) leaves ...
