  • Shadbolt, Nicola M. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1982)
    The purpose of this investigation was to study the economic implications to producers of altering the offtake pattern of lambs on irrigated farms. To permit such a study, a detailed analysis of both management and drafting ...
  • Garb, Raymond M. (Lincoln University, 1998)
    The autumn performance of Caucasian clover, white clover and five grass species: perennial ryegrass, cocksfoot, phalaris, tall fescue and grazing brome were examined at Lincoln University during autumn 1998, after a summer ...
  • Walker, S. D.; Lobb, W. R. (New Zealand Grassland Association., 1968)
    Climate and pasture production in mid-Canterbury have been discussed by Rickard (1968). Under “dryland” farming conditions, pasture of some 110 to 130 aBys when production is very low reduction is-limited by (1) ...
  • Grayling, William J. (Lincoln University, Christchurch, 2008)
    Irrigation is an integral component of Canterbury dairy farming to produce reliable summer pasture production to support high performing dairy cows. Within the Canterbury region there is becoming increased pressure over ...
  • Cookson, Timothy R. (Lincoln University. Faculty of Commerce. Kellogg Rural Leaders Programme., 2009)
    Irrigation and water storage has long been touted as a potential for improvements in productivity in dryland East Coast areas. Reports date back to the 1880's discussing the benefits water would bring to farmlands. Currently ...
  • Pangborn, Marvin C.; Woodford, Keith B. (International Farm Management Association., 2011-03)
    The purpose of this research was to quantify the extent of the increase in dairy farming in Canterbury, New Zealand, and to examine factors that have led to the changes in land use and production. In this paper we present ...
  • Morgan, Matthew J.; Bright, John C. (South Island Dairy Event (SIDE)., 2003)
    With 58% of all water allocated for consumptive use in New Zealand, and 70% of the nation’s irrigated land, Canterbury is already critically dependent on water resource development in the form of irrigation and stock ...
  • Hornay, Filomeno (Lincoln University, 1996)
    Irrigation is one of the important components to increase agricultural production, primarily in areas where the annual rainfall is inadequate. There are many areas in New Zealand which are subjected to drought due to ...
  • Mills, Annamaria; Moot, Derrick J.; McKenzie, Bruce A. (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 ...
  • Stewart, J. D. (Lincoln College., 1963-06)
    The survey was requested by the Irrigation Development Association of the Ashburton-Lyndhurst Irrigation Scheme, and was mainly financed by the Association, from levies on its members. The objective was to obtain information ...
  • Black, Alistair (Lincoln University, 2004)
    A series of three main experiments aimed to define the place of Caucasian clover (Trifolium ambiguum M. Bieb) with respect to white clover (T. repens L.) in temperate New Zealand pastures. Experiment 1 used sheep liveweight ...
  • Scott, W. R. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1977)
    Between 1972 and 1976 a series of field experiments were conducted to investigate the factors limiting grain yield in wheat (Triticum aestivum L). Spike population restricted yield when it was below about 500 spikes/m² ...
  • Warren, A. F. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1970)
    A study was undertaken to determine the effectiveness of the Penman and Thornthwaite methods of estimating potential evapo-transpiration. The criteria used to determine potential evapo-transpiration was that of weighed ...
  • Ritchie, I. J. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1976)
    Agricultural research has shown that it is possible to achieve excellent economic results by the addition of irrigation to those farms situated in the low rainfall areas of the South Island. However, many farmers who have ...
  • Pittaway, S. F.; McGregor, M. J. (New Zealand Grassland Association., 1987)
    The Arrow River Irrigation Scheme has been in operation since the early 1930s. Farming systems within the scheme have been predominantly sheep with limited cereal cropping. Irrigation has been used mainly to ensure that ...
  • Powers, Joseph (Lincoln University, Vienna & Christchurch, 2012)
    A study was conducted to investigate the dynamics of water infiltration into an unsaturated Lismore silt loam under centre‐pivot irrigation.  This was done to quantify the relative impact of application intensity and ...
  • Herbert, Stephen J. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1977)
    Interest in sweet lupins as a possible source of high quality protein prompted the studies reported in this thesis. At the time of the inception of these studies several scientific groups in Australia and New Zealand were ...
  • Scott, D.; Robertson, J. S.; Pollock Keith, M. (New Zealand Grassland Association., 1994)
    A 2 ha 6-year trial on pure stands of irrigated Grasslands Roa tall fescue compared the effect of high (600-300 kg N/ba/yr as urea) and moderate (300-150) nitrogen rates split over either 2- or 4- weekly application, on ...
  • Mote, John K. (Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1974)
    The thesis presents the results of research into the diffusion of irrigation in the Old Ellesmere County. Using a sample of 45 irrigating farmers the spatial and temporal diffusion of irrigation is mapped and an interpretation ...
  • Greer, Glen; Rae, G. (Lincoln University. Agribusiness and Economics Research Unit, Lincoln, Canterbury, 1992-11)
    In this study the authors have investigated the economic implications for farmers in the area of changes in the availability of irrigation water from the Ashburton River. This report comprises part of a suite of reports ...
