Multi-media resource covers lucerne management over winter
Lucerne plays an important role on many sheep and beef farms, but to maximise its yield potential the forage crop needs to be actively managed over winter.
Lucerne: Early grazing potential
Scientists at Lincoln University are pushing the boundaries to see how early a lucerne crop can be grazed in late winter and early spring.
Mixing it up with lucerne
It's difficult to achieve balance with mixes and growing pure stands within a forage system is a better option, says Professor Derrick Moot.
Legumes driving dryland production
Developing systems that drive spring production have been the focus of ongoing dryland forage trials on Lincoln University’s Ashley Dene farm.
Lucerne rewards correct management
Lucerne management was the topic for discussion on a recent Red Meat Profit Partnership teleconference. Professor Derrick Moot, of Lincoln University, outlined the advantages of the forage and provided listeners with valuable management information.
