The effect of alternative forage species and gibberellic acid on nitrate leaching
(Lincoln University, 2017-02-24)
Nitrogen (N) leaching from soil is a significant concern for intensively grazed forage-based systems because it can cause a decline in water quality. Urine patches are the main source of N leaching in these systems. In New ...
The effect of nitrogen on the yield of four pasture grass species
(Lincoln University, 2017-11-14)
This research examined the morpho-physiological attributes of four pasture grass species under two nitrogen (N) treatments. The experiment was a split plot design with main plots of N+ and N- and subplots of cocksfoot ...
Effect of abiotic stress on the success of the vertical transmission and survival during seed storage of two novel endophytes in perennial ryegrass
(Lincoln University, 2018)
Epichloë fungal endophytes, which live in symbiosis with perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) are vertically transmitted only, totally depending on the success of the host plant for their dissemination and survival. New ...
Effect on nitrate leaching of plant N uptake in the perimeter of a urine patch
(Lincoln University, 2016-11-14)
Intensification of New Zealand’s grazed pasture systems over the past decade has brought focus upon the negative impacts of agriculture on the environment. The important issue of nitrate leaching losses is currently driving ...
The interaction of New Zealand native plants with nitrogen in Canterbury’s agricultural landscapes
(Lincoln University, 2014)
Less than 0.5 % native vegetation cover remains in the productive Canterbury Plains region of New Zealand. Incorporating native plants into agricultural landscapes could provide numerous benefits including shelter, ...
Autumn nitrogen effects on perrenial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata L.) pastures in dryland Canterbury.
(Lincoln University, 2012)
This research examined the effects of autumn nitrogen application at five rates (0, 50, 100, 200 and 400 kg N/ha) on dry matter production and the nutritive value of cocksfoot and perennial ryegrass, and the subterranean ...
