The effect of spring grazing management on yield, animal liveweight gain and root reserves of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.).
(Lincoln University, 2011)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) is a common pasture legume grown in New Zealand. Rotational grazing is recommended for ensuring stand production and persistence. However, during lambing set stocking ewes and lambs is the ...
Productivity and water use of lucerne and two lucerne-grass mixtures in Canterbury
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 1990)
The long term trial, on a Templeton fine sandy loam, is a factorial combination of 3 pasture swards (pure WL320 lucerne, lucerne-‘Grasslands Matua’ prairie grass and lucerne-‘Grasslands Maru’ phalaris) and 2 grazing durations ...
Delayed sowing decreased lucerne dry matter yield over two seasons
(New South Wales Department of Primary Industry, 2013-09)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) can be sown in New Zealand from late spring (October) to early autumn (March). In the establishment season, greatest drymatter (DM) yields are normally attained from sowing early and production ...
Yield and botanical composition of lucerne, cocksfoot or ryegrass based pastures over six years
Objective: To quantify annual yield and botanical composition from lucerne, cocksfoot and ryegrass based pastures. The presentation focuses on results from the MaxClover Grazing Experiment and lucerne grazing management ...
The aim of this research was to quantify annual yield and botanical compositionfrom lucerne, cocksfoot and ryegrass based pastures for dryland situations.
The release of nitrogen and carbohydrate from herbage during comminution
(Lincoln University, 2017)
In forage-based livestock production systems, dietary N is often in excess supply. In addition, the efficiency with which ruminants utilise dietary N utilisation is low, leading to substantial losses of N to the environment, ...
Strain diversity of rhizobia occupying lucerne and Caucasian clover nodules in New Zealand high country soil
A poster summarising a study that aims to quantify nodulation and genetic diversity of strains recovered from lucerne and Caucasian clover, grown in soils of low pH and high aluminium.
Growth and development of lucerne with different fall dormancy ratings
(Lincoln University, 2018)
The main aim of this research was to understand differences in the growth and development of three lucerne genotypes with different fall dormancy (FD) ratings; FD2 (dormant), FD5 (semi-dormant) and FD10 (winter-active). ...
Alfalfa coumestrol content in response to development stage, fungi, aphids, and cultivar
(American Society of Agronomy, 2018-03-29)
Coumestrol produced by alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) can reduce the ovulation rate of ewes. This study isolated agronomic factors that affect coumestrol levels in alfalfa. Fungal diseases explained most differences in ...
Effects of nitrogen fertiliser and regrowth interval on herbage dry matter yield, chemical composition and nitrogen solubility of alternative pasture forages in irrigated Canterbury conditions
(Lincoln University, 2018)
The New Zealand agricultural sector is challenged with finding approaches to reduce the loss of nitrogen (N) through nitrate leaching, without the loss of farm production and profitabilty. One way to do this is to use ...
