Lime, phosphorus and sulphur response of French serradella (Ornithopus sativus) grown in an acid upland soil
(International Scientific Publications, 2014-06-01)
Soil acidity severely restricts legume persistence and growth in grazed upland agriculture in New Zealand. An alternative and potentially acid tolerant forage legume, French serradella (Ornithopus sativus), was examined ...
Soil pH, exchangeable aluminium and legume yield responses to deep-placed lime at Omarama Station
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-17)
The passive moment of lime down the soil profile in dryland is slow so a machine was developed to directly inject lime into soil, and was tested it at Omarama Station. Pelleted lime was injected at simultaneous depths of ...
Soil acidity and aluminium in South Island high and hill-country: New data and future needs
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-19)
Soil extractable aluminium (A1) concentrations can have a strong impact on the establishment, growth and persistence of pasture legumes. This has become clear in New Zealand high and hill-country, where legumes are scarce ...
Phosphorus response and optimum pH ranges of twelve pasture legumes grown in an acid upland New Zealand soil under glasshouse conditions
(Chilean Society of Soil Science (Sociedad Chilena de la Ciencia del Suelo), 2016-06)
Pasture legumes provide critical nitrogen inputs but fail to persist in typical acidic low P fertility upland soils. Alternative legume species for these environments are urgently sought. Twelve novel legume species were ...
