A study of foliar leaching of lucerne
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1967)
The work reported here is an evaluation of leaching losses from Medicago sativa. Lucerne plants subjected to rain, dew or mist lose nutrients by leaching, the extent of nutrient loss being influenced by a number of factors, ...
Effect of defoliation management, nitrogen and grass overdrilling on the yield and quality of lucerne
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1971)
Lucerne (Medicago media) is of major interest in Canterbury partly because of its high yield potential and drought resistance. Traditionally lucerne was grown for hay, but more recently it has assumed importance for grazing. ...
Studies of Alfalfa mosaic virus in subterranean clover red leaf virus
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1978)
AMV was shown to be transmitted by sap, aphids and through lucerne seed but not by Cuscuta. Virus source and test plant influenced transmission frequency. Sap-inoculation tests showed that twenty species of plants were ...
The growth of lucerne following defoliation
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1970)
Much agricultural research has been directed towards maximizing pasture and crop yields. This has involved the identification of factors limiting growth and the formulation of management systems which will assist swards ...
Comparison of pasture establishment from a conventional disc drill and a prototype strip seeder drill
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 1991)
Establishment of grasses and legumes drilled in spring with a prototype strip seeder drill or a conventional tripledisc drill were compared on two sites in the presence and absence of paraquat. On the Earnscleugh site, ...
Aspects of soil ecology of rhizobia affecting nodule occupancy on lucerne and white clover
(Lincoln University, 2017-01-27)
Successful establishment of white clover (Trifolium repens) and lucerne (Medicago sativa) in the field depends on the formation of effective symbioses with Rhizobium leguminosarum and Sinorhizobium meliloti, respectively. ...
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.
An evaluation of cocksfoot/lupin pasture as an alternative forage for summer-dry environments
(Lincoln University, 2016-11-14)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the animal and herbage productivity of a perennial lupin/cocksfoot pasture mix when compared with a lucerne pure sward positive control in a summer dry environment, at Lincoln University, ...
The release of nitrogen and carbohydrate from herbage during comminution
(Lincoln University, 2017)
In forage-based livestock production systems, dietary N is often in excess supply. In addition, the efficiency with which ruminants utilise dietary N utilisation is low, leading to substantial losses of N to the environment, ...
The effect of spring grazing management on yield, animal liveweight gain and root reserves of lucerne (Medicago sativa L.).
(Lincoln University, 2011)
Lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) is a common pasture legume grown in New Zealand. Rotational grazing is recommended for ensuring stand production and persistence. However, during lambing set stocking ewes and lambs is the ...
