Premature mammary development in ewe lambs exposed to an oestrogenic lucerne pasture
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
A report of mammary development in 6-month-old ewe lambs grazing lucerne on a commercial farm in North Otago provided an opportunity to investigate the possibility to use this as a tool to detect oestrogenic lucerne pastures. ...
Which rhizobia nodulate which legumes in New Zealand soils?
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
Recent work which genotypically characterised rhizobia of native, crop and weed legumes in New Zealand and examined their cross-nodulation ability is reviewed and related to earlier work with focus on New Zealand pasture ...
Urine patch area coverage of an intensively stocked dairy pasture
(Lincoln University., 2010-08)
The objective of this study was to develop a new method to quantify seasonal and annual urine patch area coverage under an intensive dairy farming system.
A synergistic mitigation technology for nitrate leaching and nitrous oxide emissions for pastoral agriculture
Report on a mitigation technology which is synergistic for the reduction of both NO3 leaching and N2O emissions and also for the improvement of pasture yield.
The study of rural change from a social scientific perspective: a literature review and annotated bibliography

Growth and development of different lucerne cultivars
(Lincoln University, 2016-11-14)
This dissertation compared lucerne dry matter production from 10 genotypes in irrigated conditions at Lincoln University. First year yields averaged 10 t DM/ha for the establishment year with no differences found among culitvars.
The influence of water and nitrogen on growth and development of fodder beet (Beta vulgaris)
(Lincoln University, 2018-02-21)
Fodder beet (Beta vulgaris L. subsp. vulgaris var. Alba) is commonly grown in New Zealand as a forage crop to feed dairy cattle. It has high potential yields and feed quality advantage over other traditional winter crops ...
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 ...
