The establishment and growth of ‘Stamina 5’ lucerne (Medicago sativa) seed sown with three inoculant carriers (ALOSCA®, coated, and peat slurry treated) or as bare seed (control) on five dates (21 October 2010, 9 November ...
Potential yield of cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata) monocultures in response to irrigation and nitrogen
(Wageningen Academic Publishers, 2005)
This research quantified the response of pure cocksfoot pasture to irrigation and nitrogen.
Photoperiod affects the flowering time of field sown balansa clover
(CSIRO Publishing., 2010)
Two cultivars of balansa clover (Trifolium michelianum Savi.) were sown on eight occasions from 14 October 2005 to 5 February 2007 in Canterbury, New Zealand which gave a range of photoperiod at emergence between 8.6 and ...
Legumes for hill country
In drought prone hill country, legumes can be introduced to increase nitrogen transfer to companion grasses which increases both the quality and quantity of feed available for grazing livestock. This powerpoint presentation ...
Natural resources for Canterbury agriculture
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2010)

Sowing strategies for slow-establishing pasture species on a North Otago dairy farm
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2000)
Slow-establishing, high quality, pasture species are frequently added to standard ryegrass–white clover seed mixtures in an effort to improve pasture nutritive value. However, intense competition during establishment can ...
Yield and water use of temperate pastures in summer dry environments
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2008)
The water use efficiencies (WUE) of a range of temperate pasture species were calculated from measurements on several different dryland and irrigated pastures in Canterbury. The annual WUE ranged from 6.7 kg DM/ ha/mm for ...
The aim of this research was to quantify annual yield and botanical compositionfrom lucerne, cocksfoot and ryegrass based pastures for dryland situations.
Cocksfoot and lucerne productivity in a Pinus radiata silvopastoral system: a grazed comparison
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2001)
Plant and animal production from cocksfoot pasture and lucerne under 10–11 year-old radiata pine trees (200 stems/ha) and from adjacent open pastures (without trees) were measured from the Lincoln University Silvopastoral ...
