Effect of urine, potassium and dicyandiamide application on pasture production from a free-draining Canterbury dairy pasture soil
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2014)
A cut-and-carry trial was conducted on a low quick-test potassium (QTK ≤ 4) Lismore soil during 2012-13 in Springston, Canterbury to test the responsiveness of a dairy pasture to urine, dicyandiamide (DCD) and potassium ...
Does sowing an oats catch crop reduce nitrate leaching from urine deposition following simulated winter forage grazing? - a growth chamber experiment
(Springer Verlag for Royal Netherlands Society of Agricultural Science, 2018-10)
Background: Growing winter forages, such as brassicas and fodder beets, is a common feed strategy to build body condition for non-lactating cows, prior to calving, in the temperate regions of New Zealand. However, the large ...
Comparison of nitrate leaching from oats and Italian ryegrass catch crops following simulated winter forage grazing: a field lysimeter study
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2017)
Intensive winter forage grazing systems have a high risk of environmental impact due to nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching from urine deposition on cool, wet, fallow soils. We investigated the effect of sowing two catch crops after ...
Sowing a winter catch crop can reduce nitrate leaching losses from winter-applied urine under simulated forage grazing: A lysimeter study
(Wiley on behalf of the British Society of Soil Science, 2016-09)
Grazing of winter forage crops is a common management option used in the dairy industry of New Zealand, particularly in the South Island, where they are used to feed nonlactating, pregnant dairy cows prior to calving. ...
