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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
