Italian ryegrass swards reduce N leaching via greater N uptake and lower drainage over perennial ryegrass cultivars varying in cool season growth rates
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2018-02-04)
Pasture mitigation strategies are needed to reduce the negative effects of nitrate (NO₃⁻) leaching from intensive pastoral livestock production systems. We explored the capability of pasture grasses with different cool ...
Herbage dry-matter yield and nitrogen concentration of grass, legume and herb species grown at different nitrogen-fertiliser rates under irrigation
(CSIRO Publishing, 2017)
An important goal in dairy systems is to increase production while achieving environmental targets associated with lower nitrate leaching from soils. One approach is to identify forages that grow more at a given level of ...
