Establishment, annual yield and nitrogen response of eight perennial grasses in a high country environment
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2008)
An experiment was established within the Lees Valley (400 m a.s.l.), Canterbury out of low producing, browntop dominant grassland. The aim was to quantify dry matter (DM) production of improved perennial grasses in relation to ...
Seedling development and growth of white clover, caucasian clover and perennial ryegrass grown in field and controlled environments
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2002)
Autumn sowing on 4 February (SD1) and 31 March (SD2) 2000 was used to compare the establishment success of white and caucasian clovers sown with 0, 3, 6 or 12 kg seed/ha of perennial ryegrass. Total dry matter (DM) production ...

Pasture composition and production from different cropping sequences in dryland pasture converted from Pinus radiata forest
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2007)
Dry matter production and pasture composition were measured over 22 months in eight cropping sequences on a dryland site converted from forest to pasture. Cropping sequences involved different combinations of: (i) autumn ...
Thermal time requirements for flowering of precocious Asiatic magnolias
(Lincoln University, 2002)
Observations on flowering times of 55 different Magnolia species, hybrids and cultivars were made at Lincoln University over a period of five years. Results from June 1st until 50% full flowering showed thermal time was a ...
Pasture and forage options for S.I. hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2011-11-01)
The Lees Valley Farmer’s Group (LVFG) was formed in January 2005 to discuss agronomic issues related to the intensification of Lees Valley and similar farm types throughout the South Island. The initial project terminated ...
Pasture and forage options for store lamb and beef production from South Island hill and high country
(Lincoln University. Faculty of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Department of Agricultural Sciences, 2009-04)
In 2005 the Lees Valley Farmers Group applied for a MAF Sustainable Farming Fund (SFF) Grant to investigate pasture and forage options for the intensification of South Island Hill and High Country. At the beginning of the ...
Legumes for hill country

The booklet presents the preliminary results of a TIFF funded “MAXClover’ dryland hill country legume experiment at Clarence Bridge, Marlborough. It also includes a practical guide to on-farm management for direct grazed ...
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 ...
Liveweight production of ewes and lambs grazing a dryland lucerne monoculture with or without barley grain supplementation
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2016)
In 2013/2014 (Year 1) and 2014/2015 (Year 2) at Ashley Dene, Canterbury, New Zealand, sheep grazing dryland lucerne monocultures were supplemented with barley grain. In neither year did barley grain supplementation improve ...
