The turn of the 21st century marked a crossroads for organic agriculture. By 2002, when the research project detailed in this chapter was being designed, organic agriculture had emerged as a commercial force that incorporated ...
Does sowing an oats catch crop reduce nitrate leaching from urine deposition following simulated winter forage grazing? - a growth chamber experiment
(Springer Verlag for Royal Netherlands Society of Agricultural Science, 2018-10)
Background: Growing winter forages, such as brassicas and fodder beets, is a common feed strategy to build body condition for non-lactating cows, prior to calving, in the temperate regions of New Zealand. However, the large ...
Catch crops to mitigate N loss after winter forage grazing: From plot to paddock
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2019)
Recent research has shown sowing a catch crop can reduce nitrate leaching after simulated winter forage grazing. However, most of this research has been reported from lysimeter and small plot trials where the pragmatic ...
Fertiliser-coating technology to improve the efficiency of copper uptake in pastures
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2018)
Current practice for trace element (TE) application is to admix granular trace elements in with macro-elemental fertilisers. Although the correct rate of trace elements per hectare can be applied, the distribution of the ...
