Irrigation effects on soil organic carbon under a ryegrass-white clover pasture on a Lismore stony silt loam soil : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy at Lincoln University
(Lincoln University, 2020)
Long-term summer irrigation of temperate managed pastures has been reported to either increase or decrease soil organic carbon (SOC) stocks when compared with dryland systems. Understanding the short-term effects of ...
Seventy years of data from the world’s longest grazed and irrigated pasture trials
(Springer Nature, 2021-02-10)
Pastures are the most widespread land use, globally. The Winchmore trials were established in 1948–1949 in Canterbury, New Zealand and examined either different rates of phosphorus (P) fertiliser on the same irrigation ...
Understanding water losses from irrigated pastures on loess-derived hillslopes
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2020-09-09)
Irrigation is likely to increase water losses from hillslopes, particularly on loess-derived soils with impeded drainage. This is important as irrigation of these soils in New Zealand is increasing. A field site was ...
Summer irrigation of pasture enhances the transfer and short-term storage of soil organic carbon in the particulate and mineral-associated organic matter fractions
(CSIRO Publishing, 2021)
Soil organic carbon (SOC) is both a source and sink of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂), with important implications for global climate change. Irrigation of grazed pastures has reportedly increased, reduced or made no ...
