Dry matter production of irrigated chicory, lucerne and red clover in Canterbury


Dry matter production of irrigated chicory, lucerne and red clover in Canterbury



Agronomy New Zealand 30: 129-137



A field experiment was established at Lincoln University, Canterbury, New Zealand to determine whether chicory, lucerne or red clover (Trifolium pratense) was the most suitable for inclusion in grazing systems as specialist forage. This initial evaluation compares the annual and seasonal dry matter (DM) production of the species. Plots were grazed with sheep and soil water was maintained at optimal levels with irrigation.
