Net photosynthesis rate and chlorophyll content of Caucasian and white clover leaves under different temperature regimes
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences., 2005)
Caucasian or kura clover (Trifolium ambiguum) was more productive than white clover (Trifolium repens)in New Zealand pastures. Examining the physiological basis for this difference can provide greater insight into the ...
Urine patches in cocksfoot pastures under radiata pine trees indicate severe N deficiency
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences., 2004)
The dynamics of sheep urine patches were measured for two years on grazed cocksfoot dominant pastures grown under 10-11 year old radiata pine.
Plant population, yield and water use of lucerne sown in autumn at four sowing rates.
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2012)
Successful establishment of lucerne requires an adequate plant population to maximise yield and maintain stand persistence. The impact of autumn sowing lucerne at four sowing rates was investigated in a split-plot experiment ...
Clover species cover on summer dry hill country in Central Otago
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The prevalence of annual clover species and white clover (Trifolium repens) during the critical late winter to early summer period (mid Aug – Dec) are compared in relation to aspect, altitude, temperature and rainfall on Mt ...
On-farm comparision of pasture production in relation to rainfall in central Otago
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2010)
Dry matter (DM) yields of unimproved resident browntop-dominant pasture on three Central Otago dryland farms was <1.5 t /ha/year from 2008-2010. An intensive pasture renewal programme over >18 000 ha applied lime to increase ...
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 ...
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 ...
How does defoliation management impact on yield, canopy forming processes and light interception of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops?
The frequency of defoliation is the major management tool that modulates shoot yield and the accumulation of C and N root reserves in lucerne crops. A fully irrigated, two year old lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crop was ...
Tolerance of newly sown cocksfoot-clover pastures to the herbicide imazethapyr
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2017)
In New Zealand, subterranean clover is recommended as a companion legume in mixed swards, particularly in dryland cocksfoot-based pastures. However, establishment of cocksfoot is slower than perennial ryegrass and therefore ...
Soil pH, exchangeable aluminium and legume yield responses to deep-placed lime at Omarama Station
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-17)
The passive moment of lime down the soil profile in dryland is slow so a machine was developed to directly inject lime into soil, and was tested it at Omarama Station. Pelleted lime was injected at simultaneous depths of ...
