Pasture production, nitrogen responses and sheep liveweight gain from Caucasian and white clover pastures: a dissertation submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Agricultural Science with Honours at Lincoln University
(Lincoln University, 2001)
The autumn pasture production and liveweight gain (LWG) from Caucasian and white clover/ryegrass pastures, maintained at high and low soil fertility, were measured in a grazing experiment at Lincoln University, Canterbury. ...
How does defoliation management impact on yield, canopy forming processes and light interception of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops?
The frequency of defoliation is the major management tool that modulates shoot yield and the accumulation of C and N root reserves in lucerne crops. A fully irrigated, two year old lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crop was ...
Cardinal temperatures and thermal time requirements for germination of annual and perennial temperate pasture species
(The Agronomy Society of New Zealand, 2009)
Cardinal temperatures (base (Tb), optimum (To) and maximum (Tm)) and thermal time (Tt) requirements for germination of 21 temperate annual and perennial grass, legume and weed species were calculated from incubator ...
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.
Defoliation frequency and season affected radiation use efficiency and dry matter partitioning to roots of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) crops
Radiation use efficiency (RUE), and subsequent partitioning between shoots and roots were investigated for ‘Grasslands Kaituna’ lucerne crops grown in the cool temperate climate of Canterbury, New Zealand. Crops were ...
