The potential for perennial lupins to underpin grass/legume pastures was the subject of a research programme for merino farmers in areas where more conventional legumes struggle to thrive. A previously uncultivated pasture ...
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 ...

(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-13)
Soil extractable aluminium (Al) concentrations have a strong impact on the establishment, growth and persistence of pasture legumes. A survey of 21 soil profiles in the Ashburton Lakes catchment was conducted to ...
Alfalfa coumestrol content in response to development stage, fungi, aphids, and cultivar
(American Society of Agronomy, 2018-03-29)
Coumestrol produced by alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) can reduce the ovulation rate of ewes. This study isolated agronomic factors that affect coumestrol levels in alfalfa. Fungal diseases explained most differences in ...
Delayed sowing decreased lucerne dry matter yield over two seasons
(New South Wales Department of Primary Industry, 2013-09)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) can be sown in New Zealand from late spring (October) to early autumn (March). In the establishment season, greatest drymatter (DM) yields are normally attained from sowing early and production ...
Integrating lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) into a high country merino system
(NZ Grasslands Association, 2014)
Farm systems in the dry sub-humid region of the Upper Waitaki predominantly graze merino ewes on extensive oversown and topdressed hill and high country. Smaller areas of flatter land are used to conserve winter forage ...

"Old New Zealand‟ faba beans were sown on five dates in the autumn and winter of 2008 and on three sowing dates in the autumn of 2009 at Lincoln University, Canterbury. The crops were sampled throughout their growing periods ...
Cardinal temperatures and thermal time requirements for germination of annual and perennial temperate pasture species
(The Agronomy Society of New Zealand, 2009)
Cardinal temperatures (base (Tb), optimum (To) and maximum (Tm)) and thermal time (Tt) requirements for germination of 21 temperate annual and perennial grass, legume and weed species were calculated from incubator ...
