Growth of lucerne in response to height and frequency of defoliation
(Cambridge University Press, 1965-06)
Lucerne has generally been reported to decline in productivity with increasing intensity of utilization. Considerable evidence is available to show that both frequency and height of cutting determine subsequent yield (e.g. ...
The changing plant and tiller populations of timothy and meadow fescue swards. I. Plant survival and the pattern of tillering
(British Ecological Society, 1964-05)
In recent years several studies have increased our understanding of the growth and development of perennial herbage grasses. In particular, the production, life-history and development of individual tillers of single plants ...
The adult education activities of Lincoln College

Environmental control of cleistogamy in prairie grass (Bromus unioloides H.B.K.)
(Wiley on behalf of the New Phytologist Trust, 1965-04)
In long days (16 hours) flowers of prairie grass (Bromus unioloides H.B.K.) were almost invariably cleistogamous. In shorter photoperiods chasmogamous flowers were the rule provided soil moisture was high. Chasmogamy was ...
A study of New Zealand wheats. II. Flower initiation and development
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, New Zealand, 1965-05)
In a field experiment Hilgendorf wheat was found to initiate and produce ears earlier than Aotea, Arawa, and Cross Seven. Under controlled conditions none of the varieties tested showed an obligatory requirement for ...
A study of New Zealand wheats. I. Growth and yield characteristics
(Taylor and Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 1965)
Growth and yield of New Zealand wheat varieties sown in May were examined critically during two growing seasons. Differences in plant number and particularly tiller survival led to a greater population of ears in Hilgendorf ...
