Yield and botanical composition of four dryland pastures at Ashley Dene Research Farm over 8 years
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2021-06-29)
Dry matter yield and botanical composition of four grazed dryland pasture types were compared over 8 years in summer-dry conditions at Ashley Dene, Canterbury, New Zealand. The experiment was sown in March 2013 to evaluate ...
Can salt increase oversowing success on south facing hill country?
(Lincoln University, Agriculture Group., 2006-11)
Salt application is a tool for pasture management and improvement in the hill/high country that could be used together with other methods such as herbicides, seeding, sub-division, grazing management and fertiliser.
Legumes for hill country
(Lincoln University., 2012-04-03)
The booklet presents the preliminary results of a TIFF funded “MAXClover’ dryland hill country legume experiment at Clarence Bridge, Marlborough. It also includes a practical guide to on-farm management for direct grazed ...
Causes of leaf reddening in subterranean clover cultivars
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2020-04-30)
Subterranean clover (Trifolium subterraneum L.) is an important legume in dryland hill pastures in New Zealand. In this environment plants adapt to low temperatures (<10°C) through a series of physiological mechanisms, ...
Phosphorus response and efficiency of 12 novel dryland legume species on an acid high country soil
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2012-02)
High country soils are typically acidic and have low fertility compared with intensive high fertility low land systems. Pasture legumes commonly used in New Zealand perform poorly in these environments. The optimum soil P ...
Potential yield of cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata) monocultures in response to irrigation and nitrogen
(Wageningen Academic Publishers, 2005)
This research quantified the response of pure cocksfoot pasture to irrigation and nitrogen.
Nitrogen fixation by subterranean and white clovers in dryland cocksfoot pastures
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2010)
The amount of nitrogen (N) in clover dry matter (DM) herbage derived from N fixation in subterranean or white clover was estimated using the ¹⁵N enrichment technique in a dryland grazing experiment at Lincoln University. ...
Urine patches indicate yield potential of cocksfoot
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2002)
Dry matter (DM) production and crude protein (CP%) of sheep urine patches in a grazed cocksfoot pasture (28 day rotation with 21±1 days regrowth) were measured at Lincoln University from September 1999 to May 2001. Also, ...
Cocksfoot and lucerne productivity in a Pinus radiata silvopastoral system: a grazed comparison
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2001)
Plant and animal production from cocksfoot pasture and lucerne under 10–11 year-old radiata pine trees (200 stems/ha) and from adjacent open pastures (without trees) were measured from the Lincoln University Silvopastoral ...
Dryland pasture yields and botanical composition over 5 years under sheep grazing in Canterbury
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2008)
Annual dry matter (DM) production and botanical composition of six dryland pasture combinations, grown under sheep grazing at Lincoln University for 5 years, are presented. In 4 years, lucerne produced the highest DM yields ...
