Nitrogen yields from sown pasture components in cocksfoot based pastures in a temperate environment
(Agropolis International Publications, Montpellier., 2010-09)
Cocksfoot (orchardgrass; Dactylis glomerata L.) is a persistent pasture grass in temperate dryland pastoral farming systems. Yield is strongly reliant on nitrogen (N) availability either from inorganic fertilisers of ...
Sub clover, cocksfoot and lucerne combine to improve dryland stock production
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The temporal (seasonal) pattern of dryland pasture and stock production from four cocksfoot based pastures (mixed with balansa, Caucasian, subterranean or white clover), a ryegrass/white clover pasture and a pure lucerne crop ...
Urine patches indicate yield potential of cocksfoot
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2002)
Dry matter (DM) production and crude protein (CP%) of sheep urine patches in a grazed cocksfoot pasture (28 day rotation with 21±1 days regrowth) were measured at Lincoln University from September 1999 to May 2001. Also, ...
Yield and botanical composition of lucerne, cocksfoot or ryegrass based pastures over six years
Objective: To quantify annual yield and botanical composition from lucerne, cocksfoot and ryegrass based pastures. The presentation focuses on results from the MaxClover Grazing Experiment and lucerne grazing management ...
Cocksfoot and lucerne productivity in a Pinus radiata silvopastoral system: a grazed comparison
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2001)
Plant and animal production from cocksfoot pasture and lucerne under 10–11 year-old radiata pine trees (200 stems/ha) and from adjacent open pastures (without trees) were measured from the Lincoln University Silvopastoral ...
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 ...
Selection of sub clover cultivars for New Zealand dryland pastures
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
New Australian-bred cultivars of subterranean (sub) clover with high levels of hardseededness are being promoted in New Zealand based on their superior performance in Australia. These new cultivars may not be suited to ...
Potential yield of cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata) monocultures in response to irrigation and nitrogen
(Wageningen Academic Publishers, 2005)
This research quantified the response of pure cocksfoot pasture to irrigation and nitrogen.
