The growth, yield and water use responses of lentils (Lens culinaris Medic.) to irrigation
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1986)
In a field trial conducted at Lincoln, New Zealand, during 1984/85, the water relations and the growth and yield responses of lentils (Lens culinaris Medic.) to irrigation were investigated. The cultivars Titore and Olympic ...
Growth of lucerne
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 1968)
There can be few other forage plants which have stimulated a greater volume of research work than lucerne. Although part of the reason for this sustained interest may be its great antiquity as a fodder plant, for ...
Autumn yield of caucasian and white clover pastures under irrigated and drought conditions : a dissertation submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Agricultural Science with Honours at Lincoln University
(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 ...
A study of yield, quality and subsoil water uptake of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cv. Kopara
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1981)
Several seasons trials at Lincoln College have helped provide a greater understanding of how the yield components of autumn sown wheat are determined (Dougherty et al. 1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, Scott et al. 1973, 1977). ...
The effect of stocking rates on white clover morphology and yield
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1985)
An assessment of the effect of stocking rate on white clover morphology and yield was made in a field experiment conducted at Lincoln College, Canterbury, from October 1983 to August 1984. Irrigated white clover/ryegrass ...
Development and yield components of high-yielding wheat crops
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 1977)
In a field experiment, 'Arawa' wheat outyielded 'Aotea' by 10% through the production of a higher grain yield per ear. Irrigation had no effect on grain yield because of plant uptake of subsoil moisture. Nitrogen increased ...
Fodder production of tagasaste (Chamaecytisus palmensis)
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1989)
To investigate the fodder productivity of tagasaste (Chamaecytisus palmensis) two experiments were conducted at Lincoln College, Canterbury, New Zealand (latitude 43° 39’S and 172° 28’E; altitude 11 meters), on a fertile ...
Yield response to pea (Pisum sativum L.) genotype, population and sowing date
(Bentham Open, 2012)
This research objective was to examine the effect of herbicide, genotype, population and sowing date on crop yield and weed growth in Pisum sativum. In 2007/08, cyanazine treated peas had a mean seed yield of 508 g m⁻² , ...
Sheep performance on perennial lupins at Sawdon Station, Lake Tekapo
A three-year trial compared the performance of Merino ewes grazing on a perennial lupin pasture with a control flock run predominantly on lucerne pastures at Sawdon Station, Lake Tekapo.
Yield and composition of lucerne stands in Central Otago after different winter grazing and weed control treatments
The effect of grazing date and time of spraying with a glyphosate/atrazine herbicide combination on a three year-old lucerne stand was studied on-farm in Central Otago. Total annual dry matter (DM) yield was highest in the ...
