Dryand pastures - agronomy and grazing management
This presentation explains the agronomy, growth and development of a range of pasture species used in dryland pastoral systems in New Zealand. It shows the effects of temperature, water and fertilisers on productivity 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 ...
Yield and botanical composition of lucerne, cocksfoot or ryegrass based pastures over six years
Objective: To quantify annual yield and botanical composition from lucerne, cocksfoot and ryegrass based pastures. The presentation focuses on results from the MaxClover Grazing Experiment and lucerne grazing management ...
The aim of this research was to quantify annual yield and botanical compositionfrom lucerne, cocksfoot and ryegrass based pastures for dryland situations.
Caucasian clover responses to fertiliser, lime and rhizobia inoculation at Lake Heron Station, Canterbury
The agronomic performance of Caucasian clover in high country grasslands was the subject of two experiments at Lake Heron Station, Canterbury.
Premature mammary development in ewe lambs exposed to an oestrogenic lucerne pasture
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
A report of mammary development in 6-month-old ewe lambs grazing lucerne on a commercial farm in North Otago provided an opportunity to investigate the possibility to use this as a tool to detect oestrogenic lucerne pastures. ...
Identification and effectiveness of rhizobial strains that nodulate Lupinus polyphyllus
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2014)
Lupinus polyphyllus plants were heavily nodulated at 10 field sites sampled across the South Island. Twenty-two bacterial isolates from these nodules formed functional nodules on L. polyphyllus indicating that rhizobia ...
Two annual legume species and their selection of nodule occupants
Despite New Zealand's reliance on legume and ryegrass dominated pastures, little is known about naturalised rhizobia strains in New Zealand soils. This work sets out to determine whether naturalised rhizobia resident in a ...
Net photosynthesis rate and chlorophyll content of Caucasian and white clover leaves under different temperature regimes
Higher net photosynthesis rates were found for Caucasian or kura clover (Trifolium ambiguum) compared to white clover (Trifolium repens) in New Zealand pastures. This was attributed to Caucasian clovers higher chlorophyll ...
Can salt increase oversowing success on south facing hill country?
(Lincoln University, Agriculture Group., 2006-11)
Salt application is a tool for pasture management and improvement in the hill/high country that could be used together with other methods such as herbicides, seeding, sub-division, grazing management and fertiliser.
