Implications of grass-clover interactions in dairy pastures for forage indexing systems. 4. Canterbury
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2018)
This paper describes how the core treatments in the national experimental design (all combinations of with/without clover and high/low nitrogen (N)) were implemented at an irrigated Canterbury site and monitored for three ...
Reducing nitrogen leaching losses in grazed dairy systems using an Italian ryegrass-plantain-white clover forage mix
(Wiley on behalf of the British Grassland Society and the European Grassland Federation, 2018-12)
In grazed agricultural systems, animal urine patches are the major source of nitrogen (N) leaching losses and can cause a decline in water quality. Urine-N rates often exceed plant requirements, and there is a need for ...
Specific genotypes of plantain (Plantago lanceolata) vary in their impact on sheep urine volume and nitrification in the urine patch
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-13)
Plantain has the potential to reduce nitrate leaching through a number of mechanisms. In an indoor study, sheep were offered either perennial ryegrass or different plantain genotypes while aiming to achieve similar dry ...
