Spring water use efficiency of six dryland pastures in Canterbury
The spring water use efficiency (WUE) of six pasture combinations was calculated from the 'MaxClover‟ grazing experiment at Lincoln University. Pastures have been established for six years and are grazed by best management ...
Sheep liveweight production from lucerne, cocksfoot or ryegrass based pastures
Sheep liveweight (LW) production and total annual DM yields of four dryland cocksfoot (CF) based pastures (sown in combination with subterranean (Sub), balansa (Bal), white (Wc) or Caucasian (Cc) clovers); a perennial ...
Nitrogen yields from sown pasture components in cocksfoot based pastures in a temperate environment
(Agropolis International Publications, Montpellier., 2010-09)
Cocksfoot (orchardgrass; Dactylis glomerata L.) is a persistent pasture grass in temperate dryland pastoral farming systems. Yield is strongly reliant on nitrogen (N) availability either from inorganic fertilisers of ...
