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.
Annual dry matter, metabolisable energy and nitrogen yields of six dryland pastures six and seven years after establishment
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2010)
Dry matter (DM) yields, botanical composition, liveweight production and pasture quality of six grazed dryland pastures established in 2002 at Lincoln University, Canterbury, are reported for Years 6 (2007/08) and 7 ...
Seed potato physiological age and crop establishment
Seed potato physiological age progressively advances with time (chronological age), but is also influenced by temperature during storage. In this work, different combinations of constant temperatures (2, 8 and 20°C) were ...
Seed development of arrowleaf, balansa, gland and Persian clover
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
The development process from floral bud formation to seed maturity of four top flowering annual clovers was quantified from a field experiment across 10 sowing dates at Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand. For each ...
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 ...
Optimal grazing management to achieve high yields and utilisation of dryland lucerne
(NZ Grassland Association, 2016)
The pre- and post-grazing dry matter yields from six individual paddocks in a grazed lucerne rotation were compared at Ashley Dene, Lincoln University, over 5 years. The mean annual yield was ~12 000 kg DM/ha and unaffected ...
Lucerne establishment sequences to maximise weed control in ex-Pinus radiata L. plantations
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2007)
Lucerne sown immediately or after different forage crop sequences was investigated as a pasture option for post forestry conversion. In this experiment superphosphate and lime were applied in March 2005 before final seedbed ...
Lime, phosphorus and sulphur response of French serradella (Ornithopus sativus) grown in an acid upland soil
(International Scientific Publications, 2014-06-01)
Soil acidity severely restricts legume persistence and growth in grazed upland agriculture in New Zealand. An alternative and potentially acid tolerant forage legume, French serradella (Ornithopus sativus), was examined ...
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 ...
Soil pH, exchangeable aluminium and lucerne yield responses to lime in a South Island high country soil
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2010)
A 2-year field experiment was conducted on a high country brown stony soil in the Lees Valley, North Canterbury. Two forms of lime (‘AgLime’ and ‘Quicklime’) were applied at 4 rates (0, 2, 4 and 8 t/ ha) and plots sown ...
