Yield and water use of temperate pastures in summer dry environments
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2008)
The water use efficiencies (WUE) of a range of temperate pasture species were calculated from measurements on several different dryland and irrigated pastures in Canterbury. The annual WUE ranged from 6.7 kg DM/ ha/mm for ...
Quality and quantity of chicory, lucerne and red clover production under irrigation
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2004)
The quality and quantity of production from irrigated lucerne, chicory and red clover swards were compared over six years (30 November 1996 30 June 2002) on a Wakanui silt loam at Lincoln University. Mean annual yields ...
An explanation of yield differences in three potato cultivars
(American Society of Agronomy, 2016-07)
Under ideal growing conditions, yield is the product of intercepted photosynthetically active radiation (PARi) and its conversion efficiency to dry matter (radiation use efficiency, RUE). For potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) ...
Sub clover, cocksfoot and lucerne combine to improve dryland stock production
(New Zealand Grassland Association., 2006)
The temporal (seasonal) pattern of dryland pasture and stock production from four cocksfoot based pastures (mixed with balansa, Caucasian, subterranean or white clover), a ryegrass/white clover pasture and a pure lucerne crop ...
(Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, 2012)
Development, growth and water extraction of seeding lucerne grown on two contrasting soil types
Dryland lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) was established at Lincoln University, New Zealand in two soils which differed in the plant available water content (PAWC). The high PAWC site is a silt loam soil with ~325 mm of water ...
