Plant population, yield and water use of lucerne sown in autumn at four sowing rates.
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2012)
Successful establishment of lucerne requires an adequate plant population to maximise yield and maintain stand persistence. The impact of autumn sowing lucerne at four sowing rates was investigated in a split-plot experiment ...
Soil pH, exchangeable aluminium and legume yield responses to deep-placed lime at Omarama Station
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-17)
The passive moment of lime down the soil profile in dryland is slow so a machine was developed to directly inject lime into soil, and was tested it at Omarama Station. Pelleted lime was injected at simultaneous depths of ...
Premature mammary development in ewe lambs exposed to an oestrogenic lucerne pasture
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
A report of mammary development in 6-month-old ewe lambs grazing lucerne on a commercial farm in North Otago provided an opportunity to investigate the possibility to use this as a tool to detect oestrogenic lucerne pastures. ...
A review of recent research and extension on dryland lucerne in New Zealand
(New Zealand Society of Animal Production, 2014)
To maintain scientific integrity requires the publication of research articles in journals of high international standing. Results from such work are frequently discounted as irrelevant and of low value to practitioners ...
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 ...
Lucerne agronomy and grazing, Rutherglen, Victoria
Presentation on lucerne agronomy and grazing in Rutherglen, Victoria.
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 ...
Adapting farm systems to a drier future
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2008)
In the Starborough-Flaxbourne area the local farming community, alarmed at the increasing hill slope erosion, set up a soil conservation group. Accelerated erosion was a symptom of the past 12 years of below average rainfall. ...
Animal performance changes over 11 years after implementing a lucerne grazing system on Bog Roy Station
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2019-11-04)
In 2008, Bog Roy was run as a typical high-country station with merino ewes and lambs set stocked for long periods of the year, with 60 ha of lucerne grown for hay. Over the next 7 years, the lucerne and ryecorn areas ...
