Yield and composition of lucerne strands in Central Otago after different winter grazing and weed control treatments
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2014-12-01)
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 ...
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 ...
Predicting the transpiration of lucerne
(Elsevier B.V. on behalf of the European Society for Agronomy, 2012-11)
Crop transpiration rate is often predicted as the minimum of the supply of water from the roots and the demand for water from the shoots. A common method for predicting transpiration demand is the transpiration efficiency ...
Lucerne dry matter and N-fixation, when sown with or without lime and inoculant
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015-11)
This paper quantifies the effect of inoculation and lime on lucerne growth and nitrogen fixation over the establishment and following season. The field experiment at Ashley Dene, in Canterbury, had an initial soil pH of ...
