Net photosynthesis rate and chlorophyll content of Caucasian and white clover leaves under different temperature regimes
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences., 2005)
Caucasian or kura clover (Trifolium ambiguum) was more productive than white clover (Trifolium repens)in New Zealand pastures. Examining the physiological basis for this difference can provide greater insight into the ...
Urine patches in cocksfoot pastures under radiata pine trees indicate severe N deficiency
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences., 2004)
The dynamics of sheep urine patches were measured for two years on grazed cocksfoot dominant pastures grown under 10-11 year old radiata pine.
Plant population, yield and water use of lucerne sown in autumn at four sowing rates.
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2012)
Successful establishment of lucerne requires an adequate plant population to maximise yield and maintain stand persistence. The impact of autumn sowing lucerne at four sowing rates was investigated in a split-plot experiment ...
Clover species cover on summer dry hill country in Central Otago
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The prevalence of annual clover species and white clover (Trifolium repens) during the critical late winter to early summer period (mid Aug – Dec) are compared in relation to aspect, altitude, temperature and rainfall on Mt ...
Natural resources for Canterbury agriculture
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2010)
This plenary paper was presented as an introduction to the Canterbury region at the combined 2010 conference for the New Zealand Grassland Association, New Zealand Agronomy Society, Australian Agronomy Society and New ...
On-farm comparision of pasture production in relation to rainfall in central Otago
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2010)
Dry matter (DM) yields of unimproved resident browntop-dominant pasture on three Central Otago dryland farms was <1.5 t /ha/year from 2008-2010. An intensive pasture renewal programme over >18 000 ha applied lime to increase ...
Perennial lupin establishment and yield when sown at five different rates at Glenmore Station, Lake Tekapo
The potential for perennial lupins to underpin grass/legume pastures was the subject of a research programme for merino farmers in areas where more conventional legumes struggle to thrive. A previously uncultivated pasture ...
Sheep performance on perennial lupins at Sawdon Station, Lake Tekapo
A three-year trial compared the performance of Merino ewes grazing on a perennial lupin pasture with a control flock run predominantly on lucerne pastures at Sawdon Station, Lake Tekapo.
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 ...
Productivity and composition of perennial lupin pastures in response to six growing rates, lime application and lupin type at Glenmore Station, Lake Tekapo
This study aims to identify the sowing rate necessary to produce lupin dominant and productive pastures in the New Zealand high country under low-moderate fertility, and a regime of late spring/early summer grazing. Blue ...
