Dry matter yield and radiation use efficiency of four autumn sown top flowering annual clovers
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
Monocultures of arrowleaf (Trifolium vesiculosum), balansa (T. michelianum), gland (T. glanduliferum) and Persian (T. resupinatum) clovers were sown on four dates in autumn and winter 2010. Dry matter (DM) accumulation was ...
Integration of molecular and physiological models to explain time of anthesis in wheat
(Oxford University Press (OUP) on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2013-12-01)
Background and Aims - A model to predict anthesis time of a wheat plant from environmental and genetic information requires integration of current concepts in physiological and molecular biology. This paper describes the ...
Cardinal temperatures and thermal time requirements for germination of forage brassicas
(Agronomy New Zealand, 2012)
Cardinal temperatures, base (Tb), optimum (Topt) and maximum (Tm), and thermal time (Tt) requirements were defined for germination of nine forage brassica cultivars. Seeds were germinated at nine constant temperatures. ...
Dry matter accumulation of oats sown at five different sowing dates
(The Agronomy Society of New Zealand, 2009)
In crop rotations the harvest date of the first crop affects the sowing date of the succeeding crop which then influences the potential annual yield of the rotation. This study measured the dry matter accumulation and ...
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.
Intraspecific differences in long-term drought tolerance in perennial ryegrass
(Public Library of Science, 2018-04-04)
Lolium perenne L. (perennial ryegrass) is the most important pasture grass species in temperate regions of the world. However, its growth is restricted in summer dry environments. Germplasm screening can be used to identify ...
