Dry matter yield and radiation use efficiency of four autumn sown top flowering annual clovers
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2015)
Monocultures of arrowleaf (Trifolium vesiculosum), balansa (T. michelianum), gland (T. glanduliferum) and Persian (T. resupinatum) clovers were sown on four dates in autumn and winter 2010. Dry matter (DM) accumulation was ...
Integration of molecular and physiological models to explain time of anthesis in wheat
(Oxford University Press (OUP) on behalf of the Annals of Botany Company, 2013-12-01)
Background and Aims - A model to predict anthesis time of a wheat plant from environmental and genetic information requires integration of current concepts in physiological and molecular biology. This paper describes the ...
Intraspecific differences in long-term drought tolerance in perennial ryegrass
(Public Library of Science, 2018-04-04)
Lolium perenne L. (perennial ryegrass) is the most important pasture grass species in temperate regions of the world. However, its growth is restricted in summer dry environments. Germplasm screening can be used to identify ...
Cocksfoot pasture production in relation to environmental variables
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The effects of temperature, water and nitrogen on pasture production of an 8 year old ‘Wana’ cocksfoot pasture were quantified at Lincoln University, Canterbury. The maximum dry matter (DM) yield was 22.0 t/ha/yr when ...
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.
Yield and N concentration of ‘stay-green’ maize hybrids under different N fertilizer regimes
(Lincoln University., 2010)
'Stay-green’ (Sgr) maize cultivars have been selected to maintain a high green leaf area during the post silking development phase. Consequently they sustain higher photosynthetic activity than other cultivars at a time ...
Dry matter accumulation of faba bean sown at different sowing dates in Canterbury
(Agronomy Society of New Zealand Inc., 2012-11)
"Old New Zealand‟ faba beans were sown on five dates in the autumn and winter of 2008 and on three sowing dates in the autumn of 2009 at Lincoln University, Canterbury. The crops were sampled throughout their growing periods ...
Delayed sowing decreased lucerne dry matter yield over two seasons
(New South Wales Department of Primary Industry, 2013-09)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) can be sown in New Zealand from late spring (October) to early autumn (March). In the establishment season, greatest drymatter (DM) yields are normally attained from sowing early and production ...
Tolerance of newly sown cocksfoot-clover pastures to the herbicide imazethapyr
(New Zealand Grassland Association, 2017)
In New Zealand, subterranean clover is recommended as a companion legume in mixed swards, particularly in dryland cocksfoot-based pastures. However, establishment of cocksfoot is slower than perennial ryegrass and therefore ...
Photoperiod affects the flowering time of field-sown balansa clover
(Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization Publishing, 2010-08-13)
Two cultivars of balansa clover (Trifolium michelianum Savi.) were sown on eight occasions from 14 October 2005 to 5 February 2007 in Canterbury, New Zealand, which gave a range of photoperiod at emergence between 8.6 and ...
