Identification of pasture mixtures that maximise dry matter yield
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2017)
A mixture experiment was conducted to identify an optimal pasture seed mixture that maximised dry matter (DM) yield under irrigated, sheep-grazed conditions inmid-Canterbury, New Zealand. Nineteen seed mixtures were created ...
Identification and effectiveness of rhizobial strains that nodulate Lupinus polyphyllus
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2014)
Lupinus polyphyllus plants were heavily nodulated at 10 field sites sampled across the South Island. Twenty-two bacterial isolates from these nodules formed functional nodules on L. polyphyllus indicating that rhizobia ...
Yield benefits of pasture mixtures with species drilled in the same and alternate rows
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018)
This study investigated the effect of sowing species in alternate drill rows on dry matter (DM) yield of pasture mixtures. Seven mixtures of ‘Base’ perennial ryegrass, ‘Tonic’ plantain and ‘Apex’ white clover (three pure, ...
Dry matter yield of dryland and irrigated mixtures of Caucasian clover, white clover and perennial ryegrass over 5 years at Lincoln University
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-13)
This experiment investigated the effects of Caucasian clover (CC), white clover (WC), perennial ryegrass (RG) and their mixtures on dry matter (DM) yield under dryland and irrigated conditions over 5 years (1st July-30th ...
