Net photosynthesis rate and chlorophyll content of Caucasian and white clover leaves under different temperature regimes
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences., 2005)
Caucasian or kura clover (Trifolium ambiguum) was more productive than white clover (Trifolium repens)in New Zealand pastures. Examining the physiological basis for this difference can provide greater insight into the ...
Urine patches in cocksfoot pastures under radiata pine trees indicate severe N deficiency
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences., 2004)
The dynamics of sheep urine patches were measured for two years on grazed cocksfoot dominant pastures grown under 10-11 year old radiata pine.
Clover species cover on summer dry hill country in Central Otago
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The prevalence of annual clover species and white clover (Trifolium repens) during the critical late winter to early summer period (mid Aug – Dec) are compared in relation to aspect, altitude, temperature and rainfall on Mt ...
How does defoliation management impact on yield, canopy forming processes and light interception of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops?
The frequency of defoliation is the major management tool that modulates shoot yield and the accumulation of C and N root reserves in lucerne crops. A fully irrigated, two year old lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crop was ...
Forage responses to lime and nitrogen fertiliser on land converted from pine forest to dryland pasture in Canterbury
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2007)
A field trial was established to quantify the impacts of lime (0, 2.5, 5 and 10 t/ha) and nitrogen (N) fertiliser (0, 50, 100, 200 and 400 kg N/ha/year) addition on the dry matter (DM) production of a crop sequence of ...
Pasture and forage options for store lamb and beef production from South Island hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2009-04)
In 2005 the Lees Valley Farmers Group applied for a MAF Sustainable Farming Fund (SFF) Grant to investigate pasture and forage options for the intensification of South Island Hill and High Country. At the beginning of the ...
Cocksfoot and lucerne productivity in a Pinus radiata silvopastoral system: a grazed comparison
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2001)
Plant and animal production from cocksfoot pasture and lucerne under 10–11 year-old radiata pine trees (200 stems/ha) and from adjacent open pastures (without trees) were measured from the Lincoln University Silvopastoral ...
Quality and quantity of chicory, lucerne and red clover production under irrigation
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2004)
The quality and quantity of production from irrigated lucerne, chicory and red clover swards were compared over six years (30 November 1996 30 June 2002) on a Wakanui silt loam at Lincoln University. Mean annual yields ...
Sowing strategies for slow-establishing pasture species on a North Otago dairy farm
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2000)
Slow-establishing, high quality, pasture species are frequently added to standard ryegrass–white clover seed mixtures in an effort to improve pasture nutritive value. However, intense competition during establishment can ...
Urine patches indicate yield potential of cocksfoot
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2002)
Dry matter (DM) production and crude protein (CP%) of sheep urine patches in a grazed cocksfoot pasture (28 day rotation with 21±1 days regrowth) were measured at Lincoln University from September 1999 to May 2001. Also, ...
