Catch crops to mitigate N loss after winter forage grazing: From plot to paddock
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2019)
Recent research has shown sowing a catch crop can reduce nitrate leaching after simulated winter forage grazing. However, most of this research has been reported from lysimeter and small plot trials where the pragmatic ...
Comparison of three plant growth regulators and urea on a Canterbury dairy pasture
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, 2011-02)
Two plant growth regulator (PGR) products currently available in New Zealand and a new Ravensdown PGR product-ExpressTM*, all based on gibberellic acid (GA3), were applied to a Canterbury dairy pasture in late winter ...
Effect of urine, potassium and dicyandiamide (DCD) application on pasture production from a free-draining Canterbury dairy pasture soil
(Fertiliser and Lime Research Centre, 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 ...
Fertiliser-coating technology to improve the efficiency of copper uptake in pastures
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2018)
Current practice for trace element (TE) application is to admix granular trace elements in with macro-elemental fertilisers. Although the correct rate of trace elements per hectare can be applied, the distribution of the ...
Can a winter-sown catch crop reduce nitrate leaching losses after winter forage grazing?
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, 2016)
Direct grazing of winter forage crops to feed non-lactating, pregnant dairy cows prior to calving is a common management practice in the New Zealand South Island. However, the high crop yields per hectare grazed, combined ...
