Growth and development of annual and perennial clovers

Research overview

Stuart will quantify differences in amount and timing of legume production with an emphasis on spring. The aim is to determine when each species reaches a maximum period of growth and would therefore be available for grazing. He will quantify this in relation to temperature and light interception. Stuart is supervised by Professor Derrick Moot. This work is part of the Hill Country Futures programme (BLNZT1701) funded by Beef + Lamb New Zealand, MBIE, Seed Force New Zealand and PGG Wrightson Seeds.

Stuart is currently working at PGG Wrightson.
