Effects of irrigation and fertiliser on the yields of 'Arawa', 'Aotea', and 'Karamu' wheats
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 1974)
Grain yields of 'Aotea', 'Arawa', and 'Karamu' wheats were depressed by irrigation during early stages of reproductive development which reduced the number of grains per spikelet and slowed the rate of reproductive ...
Wheat yield as affected by sowing rate, irrigation, and time of white clover introduction
(Taylor & Francis, 1973)
On a fertile, moisture-retentive Wakanui silt loam Aotea wheat sown at 100 kg/ha yielded 6650 kg/ha, considerably more than when sown at 50 or 150 kg/ha. Lower yields of wheat planted at the 50 kg/ha rate were caused largely ...
An analysis of a wheat yield depression caused by high sowing rate with reference to the pattern of grain set within the ear
(Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Royal Society of New Zealand, 1975)
Grain set in spikelets of ears was reduced in spring-sown wheat established at high sowing rate (500 viable seeds/m²) compared with wheat planted at normal rates (250 seeds/m²), the reduction being greatest in spikelets ...
