Effect of ground cover and herbicide application on establishment of over sown lucerne


Effect of ground cover and herbicide application on establishment of over sown lucerne



New Zealand Journal of Experimental Agriculture 4(4): 447-449



Effects of closure from grazing and the application of paraquat desiccant before sowing on the establishment of oversown lucerne (Medicago sativa L.), and on ground cover, were investigated. The study was made over 3 sowing dates on a previously oversown and topdressed site in the semi-arid tussock grasslands of the North Otago [New Zealand] region. The spelling treatments provided up to 2.4 t[tons]/ha of standing herbage at the 1st sowing, but up to 33% of the plots remained as bare ground. Spelling gave up to a 3-fold improvement in the number of plants establishing at each sowing, the herbicide a 2-fold improvement. The response to herbicide occurred irrespective of the amount of ground cover present. The 2 spring sowings gave better establishment than the autumn sowing.
