Dryland pasture research
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2012-01)
This report presents the results of dryland pastoral research at Lincoln University. It includes a practical guide to on-farm management for direct grazed lucerne stands which implements current recommendations. It also ...
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) ...
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, 2008-11)
"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 ...
Plant population, yield and water use of lucerne sown in autumn at four sowing rates.
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2012)
Successful establishment of lucerne requires an adequate plant population to maximise yield and maintain stand persistence. The impact of autumn sowing lucerne at four sowing rates was investigated in a split-plot experiment ...
Integration of molecular and physiological models to explain time of anthesis in wheat
(Oxford University Press (OUP) on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2013-12-01)
Background and Aims - A model to predict anthesis time of a wheat plant from environmental and genetic information requires integration of current concepts in physiological and molecular biology. This paper describes the ...
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 ...
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.
Yield and N concentration of ‘stay-green’ maize hybrids under different N fertilizer regimes
(Lincoln University., 2010)
'Stay-green’ (Sgr) maize cultivars have been selected to maintain a high green leaf area during the post silking development phase. Consequently they sustain higher photosynthetic activity than other cultivars at a time ...
