Autumn nitrogen effects on perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerata L.) pastures in dryland Canterbury (PDF 2.8 MB)

Research Overview

Marie applied autumn N fertiliser to cocksfoot (Experiment 1) and ryegrass (Experiment 2) pastures at Ashley Dene, Canterbury. Her objective was to quantify the physiological basis for pasture responses to N and offer practical guidelines to dryland farmers. Yield, botanical composition, leaf extension rates and water use efficiency of the pastures were quantified. Marie was supervised by Prof. Derrick Moot.
