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, 2007-11)
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 ...
Can topdressing with salt increase oversowing success and pasture quality on steep, south facing slopes in hill country pastures?
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2006)
Two experiments were conducted in sodium deficient (<0.03% Na in DM) pastures on steep, south facing slopes at Mt Grand, Hawea, Central Otago (600 m.a.s.l), to determine the effect of the application of coarse salt (NaCl) ...

Cocksfoot pasture production in relation to environmental variables
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The effects of temperature, water and nitrogen on pasture production of an 8 year old ‘Wana’ cocksfoot pasture were quantified at Lincoln University, Canterbury. The maximum dry matter (DM) yield was 22.0 t/ha/yr when ...
Potential yield of cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata) monocultures in response to irrigation and nitrogen
(Wageningen Academic Publishers, 2005)
This research quantified the response of pure cocksfoot pasture to irrigation and nitrogen.
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.
Thermal time requirements for leaf appearance of 'Frontier' balansa clover
Balansa clover (Trifolium michelianum Savi.) is an annual Mediterranean clover species which can be used in dryland pasture mixtures with white (T. repens) and subterranean clovers (T. subterraneum). The aim is to produce ...
Forage responses to lime and nitrogen fertiliser on land converted from pine forest to dryland pasture in Canterbury
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2007)
A field trial was established to quantify the impacts of lime (0, 2.5, 5 and 10 t/ha) and nitrogen (N) fertiliser (0, 50, 100, 200 and 400 kg N/ha/year) addition on the dry matter (DM) production of a crop sequence of ...
Seedling development and growth of white clover, caucasian clover and perennial ryegrass grown in field and controlled environments
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2002)
Autumn sowing on 4 February (SD1) and 31 March (SD2) 2000 was used to compare the establishment success of white and caucasian clovers sown with 0, 3, 6 or 12 kg seed/ha of perennial ryegrass. Total dry matter (DM) production ...
Sowing strategies for slow-establishing pasture species on a North Otago dairy farm
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2000)
Slow-establishing, high quality, pasture species are frequently added to standard ryegrass–white clover seed mixtures in an effort to improve pasture nutritive value. However, intense competition during establishment can ...
