The legumes most often used in temperate pastures such as Trifolium subterraneum have relatively high external P requirements for maximum growth. We investigated root traits associated with P acquisition in current and novel pasture legumes, as well as temperate grasses which have lower P requirements. Thirteen legume species, two pasture grasses, and three(More)
This work aimed to quantify the critical external requirement for phosphorus (P) (i.e. extractable-P concentration required for 90 % of maximum yield) for a number of temperate legume species and understand differences in dry matter allocation, P distribution and P acquisition efficiency among these species. Shoot and root growth of five legume and one(More)
Comparing regression-based digital soil mapping and multiple-point geostatistics for the spatial extrapolation of soil data. Quantification of soil carbon from bulk soil samples to predict the aggregate-carbon fractions within using near-and mid-infrared spectroscopic techniques. (2016).

Trifolium subterraneum L. is the predominant annual pasture legume in southern Australia. Cultivars with improved phosphorus (P) foraging ability would improve the P-use efficiency of agricultural systems. We therefore investigated variation in root traits related to P-uptake among six cultivars. Micro-swards were grown at six levels of P in field soil with(More)
