A study of yield, quality and subsoil water uptake of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cv. Kopara
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1981)
Several seasons trials at Lincoln College have helped provide a greater understanding of how the yield components of autumn sown wheat are determined (Dougherty et al. 1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, Scott et al. 1973, 1977). ...
An investigation of problems associated with the inoculation of soybeans (Glycine max (L.) Merrill) with Rhizobium japonicum (Kirchner) Buchanan
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1965)
If soybeans are to have a place in New Zealand farming, system, they must be grown economically, in terms of yield produced and costs of production. Inoculation with rhizobia will no doubt help to achieve this aim if the ...
Agronomic factors affect powdery scab of potato and amounts of Spongospora subterranea DNA in soil
(Springer on behalf of the Australasian Plant Pathology Society, 2014-11)
Severe powdery scab (caused by Spongospora subterranea) occurred in potato tubers harvested from a field trial, which measured effects of agronomic treatments (nitrogen fertiliser rates, irrigation intensities, previous ...
Growth and development of peas in response to different inoculation methods and sowing dates
(Lincoln University, 2012)
Peas are the most valuable grain legume exported from New Zealand. The success of a pea crop depends on its capacity to form effective nitrogen-fixing symbioses with root nodule bacteria. Rhizobium spp. inoculation of peas ...
Metabolisable energy concentration in perennial ryegrass pastures: Multi-site analysis of effects of cultivar, nitrogen fertiliser and white clover content
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2018-11-13)
To include metabolisable energy (ME) as a nutritive value factor for ryegrasses in the Forage Value Index (FVI) requires data for New Zealand cultivars on the effects of environmental and management ...
Wheat nitrogen fertilisation effects on the performance of the cereal aphid Metopolophium dirhodum
(MDPI AG, 2012-02-09)
The effects of five rates of nitrogen fertiliser applications on the performance of the cereal aphid Metopolophium dirhodum on winter wheat, within the range of rates recommended for UK crops, were investigated over two ...
