Integrating lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) into a high country merino system
(NZ Grasslands Association, 2014)
Farm systems in the dry sub-humid region of the Upper Waitaki predominantly graze merino ewes on extensive oversown and topdressed hill and high country. Smaller areas of flatter land are used to conserve winter forage ...
Modern lucerne management
(Lincoln University, 2012)
Increased lucerne nodulation in acid soils with Sinorhizobium meliloti and lucerne tolerant to low pH and high aluminium
(CSIRO Publishing, 2018-10)
Acidic conditions with damaging levels of available aluminium (Al3+) currently limit lucerne (Medicago sativa) production on soils in the New Zealand high country and in large areas of Australia. Increased lucerne nodulation ...
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 ...
Pasture and forage options for S.I. hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2011-11-01)
The Lees Valley Farmer’s Group (LVFG) was formed in January 2005 to discuss agronomic issues related to the intensification of Lees Valley and similar farm types throughout the South Island. The initial project terminated ...
Pasture and forage options for store lamb and beef production from South Island hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2009-04)
In 2005 the Lees Valley Farmers Group applied for a MAF Sustainable Farming Fund (SFF) Grant to investigate pasture and forage options for the intensification of South Island Hill and High Country. At the beginning of the ...
Dryland pasture research
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2012-01)
This report presents the results of dryland pastoral research at Lincoln University. It includes a practical guide to on-farm management for direct grazed lucerne stands which implements current recommendations. It also ...
Delayed sowing decreased lucerne dry matter yield over two seasons
(New South Wales Department of Primary Industry, 2013-09)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) can be sown in New Zealand from late spring (October) to early autumn (March). In the establishment season, greatest drymatter (DM) yields are normally attained from sowing early and production ...
Yield and composition of lucerne stands in Central Otago after different winter grazing and weed control treatments
The effect of grazing date and time of spraying with a glyphosate/atrazine herbicide combination on a three year-old lucerne stand was studied on-farm in Central Otago. Total annual dry matter (DM) yield was highest in the ...
