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 ...
Role of organic anions and phosphatase enzymes in phosphorus acquisition in the rhizospheres of legumes and grasses grown in a low phosphorus pasture soil
Rhizosphere processes play a critical role in phosphorus (P) acquisition by plants and microbes, especially under P-limited conditions. Here, we investigated the impacts of nutrient addition and plant species on plant ...
Can the application of rare earth elements improve yield and decrease the uptake of cadmium in ryegrass-dominated pastures?
(CSIRO Publishing, 2015)
© 2015 CSIRO. Rare earth elements (REEs) have been linked to increases and decreases in plant growth and the uptake of biotoxic metals such as Cadmium (Cd). We hypothesised that under the right soil and climatic conditions ...
Effect of urine, potassium and dicyandiamide application on pasture production from a free-draining Canterbury dairy pasture soil
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 2014)
A cut-and-carry trial was conducted on a low quick-test potassium (QTK ≤ 4) Lismore soil during 2012-13 in Springston, Canterbury to test the responsiveness of a dairy pasture to urine, dicyandiamide (DCD) and potassium ...
