Optimal grazing management to achieve high yields and utilisation of dryland lucerne
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
The pre- and post-grazing dry matter yields from six individual paddocks in a grazed lucerne rotation were compared at Ashley Dene, Lincoln University, over 5 years. The mean annual yield was ~12 000 kg DM/ha and unaffected ...
Seed development of arrowleaf, balansa, gland and Persian clover
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
The development process from floral bud formation to seed maturity of four top flowering annual clovers was quantified from a field experiment across 10 sowing dates at Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand. For each ...
Liveweight production of ewes and lambs grazing a dryland lucerne monoculture with or without barley grain supplementation
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2016)
In 2013/2014 (Year 1) and 2014/2015 (Year 2) at Ashley Dene, Canterbury, New Zealand, sheep grazing dryland lucerne monocultures were supplemented with barley grain. In neither year did barley grain supplementation improve ...
Seed potato physiological age and crop establishment
Seed potato physiological age progressively advances with time (chronological age), but is also influenced by temperature during storage. In this work, different combinations of constant temperatures (2, 8 and 20°C) were ...
Harvest index variability within and between field pea (Pisum sativum L.) crops
(Lincoln University, 1993)
The association between individual plant performance and seed yield variability within and between field pea crops was investigated. In 1988/89 six F8 genotypes with morphologically distinct characteristics were selected ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
