Water use efficiency of six dryland pastures in Canterbury (PDF 3.4 MB)
Working within the MaxClover Grazing Experiment at Lincoln University Nop was involved with measurements in the seventh year of this long-term experiment. He measured dry matter production, botanical composition and soil water extraction and use of six dryland pastures. Four of the pastures were cocksfoot based and established with annual or perennial companion legumes compared with a ryegrass/white clover pasture and a lucerne monoculture. The objective was to identify the mechanisms that lead. The project was supervised by Prof. Derrick Moot.
