Growth and root : Shoot dry matter partitioning in seedling lucerne
Sowing date affected shoot and root biomass yield in seedling lucerne. Biomass partitioning to roots was influenced by photoperiod and water stress.
Clover growth in response to naturalised P-solubilising bacteria in New Zealand
For New Zealand pastures the main fertiliser costs are associated with the delivery of nitrogen (N) and phosphate (P). With recognition that increased consumption of N (Parfitt et al. 2006) and P fertilisers and the ...
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) dry matter, root growth and nodulation in response to lime and phosphorus in an acid, high country soil in New Zealand
Soil acidity is the main constraint for lucerne establishment and growth in high country regions of New Zealand. Root growth is suppressed in these aluminium-rich acid soils. In this experiment, lucerne was grown in PVC ...
Sheep liveweight production from lucerne, cocksfoot or ryegrass based pastures
Sheep liveweight (LW) production and total annual DM yields of four dryland cocksfoot (CF) based pastures (sown in combination with subterranean (Sub), balansa (Bal), white (Wc) or Caucasian (Cc) clovers); a perennial ...
Perennial ryegrass - saint or sinner in temperate dairy systems
Perennial ryegrass is the most important plant for pastoral agriculture in temperate pasture grazing systems. It provides flexibility in grazing management and, in its vegetative state, is a high quality feed for animal ...

Strain diversity of rhizobia occupying lucerne and Caucasian clover nodules in high country soil in New Zealand
In New Zealand, low soil pH coupled with toxic levels of aluminium limit establishment and maintenance of legumes on about 500,000 ha of farmed high country land (Moir and Moot 2010). This is attributed to poor nodulation ...
Yield, final population and emergence of seed treated lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) sown on five dates
(Australian Grasslands Association, 2012)
Dryland seedling lucerne establishment was examined at Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand. Stands were sown on 4 October, 4 November, 2 December 201 O and 10 January and 7 February 2011 with four seed treatments; ...

LINTUL-POTATO model revisited
(Australian Society of Agronomy, 2017-10)
The LINTUL-POTATO model is revisited in this work. Recent findings on quantification and description of potato crop phenology are incorporated into the original model framework. The results presented in this work may be ...
