Legume response to fertiliser (PDF unavailable)

Research Overview

Hill country needs fertilizer to promote legumes growth. This project examined the impact of different macro and micronutrients on legume and grass growth on a dryland hill site. The experiment suggested lime and sulphur were most important to plant responses and any response to P only occurred when these were adequate. Zac was supervised by Prof Derrick Moot and the 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..
