DairyMod and EcoMod: biophysical pasture-simulation models for Australia and New Zealand
DairyMod and EcoMod, which are biophysical pasture-simulation models for Australian and New Zealand grazing systems, are described. Each model has a common underlying biophysical structure, with theExpand

Morphology and response of roots of pasture species to phosphorus and nitrogen nutrition
The root morphology of ten temperate pasture species (four annual grasses, four perennial grasses and two annual dicots) was compared and their responses to P and N deficiency were characterised.Expand

Networks of practice for co-construction of agricultural decision support systems: Case studies of precision dairy farms in Australia
The on-farm use of commercial decision support systems (DSSs) presents learning and adaptation challenges for farmers and their social learning networks. A study of six Australian dairy farmsExpand

Past lessons and future prospects: plant breeding for yield and persistence in cool-temperate pastures
Pastoral-based animal production systems are under increasing pressure to provide the high quantity and quality of feed needed for optimal ruminant performance. The capacity of farmers to increaseExpand

Impacts of spatial patterns in pasture on animal grazing behavior, intake, and performance
Control over the quantity and quality of food ingested by grazing ruminants in temperate pasture systems remains elusive. This is due in part to the foraging choices that animals make when grazingExpand

Gaseous nitrogen loss from temperate perennial grass and clover dairy pastures in south-eastern Australia
The use of nitrogen (N) fertiliser on dairy pastures in south-eastern Australia has increased exponentially over the past 15 years. Concerns have been raised about the economic and environmentalExpand

Effects of grazing method and fertiliser inputs on the productivity and sustainability of phalaris-based pastures in Western Victoria
The effects of combinations of different fertiliser rates and grazing methods applied to phalaris-based pastures on an acid, saline, yellow sodosol on the Dundas Tablelands of western Victoria (meanExpand

Nitrogen balances in temperate perennial grass and clover dairy pastures in south-eastern Australia
Nitrogen (N) fertiliser use on dairy pastures in south-eastern Australia has increased exponentially over the past 15 years. Concurrently, imports of supplementary feed onto dairy farms haveExpand
