Hill Country Futures: lucerne at Willesden – the effect of altitude on seasonal production; renewing old stands

Tyler Good (Finishing Manager, Willesden Farm, Banks Peninsula) and Professor Derrick Moot (Dryland Pastures Research Group, Lincoln University) talk about the effect of altitude on the seasonal production of lucerne.

Time to pasture renewal and the renewal process are also discussed for areas previously sown in lucerne. 

Hill Country Futures was a long-term $8.1m programme focused on future proofing the profitability, sustainability and wellbeing of New Zealand’s hill country farmers, their farm systems, the environment, and rural communities. For more information, visit: https://www.hillcountryfutures.co.nz/
