Defoliation frequency and season affected radiation use efficiency and dry matter partitioning to roots of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops
Radiation use efficiency (RUE), and subsequent partitioning between shoots and roots were investigated for ‘Grasslands Kaituna’ lucerne crops grown in the cool temperate climate of Canterbury, New Zealand. Crops were ...
How does defoliation management impact on yield, canopy forming processes and light interception of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops?
The frequency of defoliation is the major management tool that modulates shoot yield and the accumulation of C and N root reserves in lucerne crops. A fully irrigated, two year old lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crop was ...
