Strain diversity of rhizobia occupying lucerne and Caucasian clover nodules in New Zealand high country soil
A poster summarising a study that aims to quantify nodulation and genetic diversity of strains recovered from lucerne and Caucasian clover, grown in soils of low pH and high aluminium.
Productivity and composition of perennial lupin pastures in response to six growing rates, lime application and lupin type at Glenmore Station, Lake Tekapo
This study aims to identify the sowing rate necessary to produce lupin dominant and productive pastures in the New Zealand high country under low-moderate fertility, and a regime of late spring/early summer grazing. Blue ...
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 ...
Impact of autumn (fall) dormancy rating on growth and development of seedling lucerne
(Journal of New Zealand Grasslands, 2016)
To quantify the influence of autumn (fall) dormancy (FD) on DM production and phenological development during the seedling phase, three lucerne genotypes with contrasting ratings were grown at Lincoln University, New ...
Effect of rate and method of phosphorus application on the growth and development of 'Pasja' crops
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2009)
‘Pasja’ (Brassica campestris x napus) was grown at Lincoln in 2008, with banded or broadcast phosphorus (P) fertiliser applied at 0, 20, 40 or 60 kg/ha at establishment on a Templeton silt loam soil of moderate fertility ...
Two annual legume species and their selection of nodule occupants
With its intensive animal production, New Zealand relies heavily on legume and ryegrass dominated pastures. Legumes in association with their rhizobial symbionts fix nitrogen and provide high quality forage. Little is known ...
Physiological age and the mechanisms of crop growth and development of two potato cultivars
(European Association for Potato Research, 2014-07)
In New Zealand, seed potatoes are commonly stored inside sheds at ambient temperature, in low temperature coolers or even left un-lifted in the ground between crop defoliation and harvest. This research describes the ...
Perennial lupin establishment and yield when sown at five different rates at Glenmore Station, Lake Tekapo
The potential for perennial lupins to underpin grass/legume pastures was the subject of a research programme for merino farmers in areas where more conventional legumes struggle to thrive. A previously uncultivated pasture ...
Medium-term soil pH and exchangeable aluminium response to liming at three high country locations
Acid soil conditions and associated aluminium (Al) toxicity pose a serious impediment to legume establishment, persistence and productivity in high country. However, data that report soil exchangeable Al concentrations in ...
Cardinal temperatures and thermal time requirements for germination of annual and perennial temperate pasture species
(The Agronomy Society of New Zealand, 2009)
Cardinal temperatures (base (Tb), optimum (To) and maximum (Tm)) and thermal time (Tt) requirements for germination of 21 temperate annual and perennial grass, legume and weed species were calculated from incubator ...
