Pasture and forage options for S.I. hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2011-11-01)
The Lees Valley Farmer’s Group (LVFG) was formed in January 2005 to discuss agronomic issues related to the intensification of Lees Valley and similar farm types throughout the South Island. The initial project terminated ...
Pasture and forage options for store lamb and beef production from South Island hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2009-04)
In 2005 the Lees Valley Farmers Group applied for a MAF Sustainable Farming Fund (SFF) Grant to investigate pasture and forage options for the intensification of South Island Hill and High Country. At the beginning of the ...
Legumes for hill country
(Lincoln University., 2012-04-03)
The booklet presents the preliminary results of a TIFF funded “MAXClover’ dryland hill country legume experiment at Clarence Bridge, Marlborough. It also includes a practical guide to on-farm management for direct grazed ...
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 ...
Selection of sub clover cultivars for New Zealand dryland pastures
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
New Australian-bred cultivars of subterranean (sub) clover with high levels of hardseededness are being promoted in New Zealand based on their superior performance in Australia. These new cultivars may not be suited to ...
Caucasian clover responses to fertiliser, lime and rhizobia inoculation at Lake Heron Station, Canterbury
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2014)
The agronomic performance of Caucasian clover in high country grasslands was the subject of two experiments at Lake Heron Station, Canterbury. In the first experiment, Caucasian clover was direct drilled into an undeveloped ...
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 ...
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 ...
Morphological, anatomical, and physiological changes of orchardgrass leaves grown under fluctuating light regimes
(American Society of Agronomy, 2007)
The physiological and anatomical adaptability of pastures growing under trees in silvopastoral systems can alter the efficiency of conversion of energy to dry matter (DM). This study was conducted to determine the effects ...
