Plant wax alkanes and alcohols as herbivore diet composition markers
Abstract The n-alkanes in plant cuticular wax have been used as markers for estimating the species composition of herbivore diets, but the long-chain fatty alcohols (LCOH) of plant wax may also beExpand

Cuticular wax alkanes and alcohols used as markers to estimate diet composition of sheep (Ovis aries)
Abstract The chemical components in plant cuticular wax can be used as markers to estimate the species composition of the diet of grazing animals. In this experiment, sheep ( Ovis aries ) grazedExpand

Impact of magnesium–sodium supplementation on liveweight gains of young sheep grazing dual-purpose cereal or canola crops
Previous experiments have shown that liveweight gains of livestock grazing dual-purpose wheats were increased by 15–60%, by supplementing animals with a 1 : 1 mixture of Causmag (MgO) : salt (NaCl).Expand

Grazing winter wheat relieves plant water stress and transiently enhances photosynthesis
To model the impact of grazing on the growth of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), we measured photosynthesis in the field. Grazing may affect photosynthesis as a consequence of changes to leaf waterExpand

Crop and livestock production for dual-purpose winter canola (Brassica napus) in the high-rainfall zone of south-eastern Australia
Abstract Dual-purpose use of canola ( Brassica napus ) for forage in winter before seed production is a practice recently developed in southern Australia. The feasibility for dual-purpose springExpand

Comparison of the alkane-based herbage intakes and the liveweight gains of young sheep grazing forage oats, dual-purpose wheat or phalaris-based pasture
Two experiments were conducted between 2004 and 2006 near Canberra, Australia, to provide information about herbage intake and liveweight gains of young sheep grazing dual-purpose crop cf. pasture.Expand

Growth rate responses to magnesium or sodium supplements in lambs grazing dual-purpose wheats
Lambs grazed vegetative wheat crops in south-east Australia with and without Mg or Na supplements. Relative to the requirements for lamb growth, wheat forage was marginal for Mg, adequate for Ca,Expand

Breeding for Salinity-Stressed Environments: Recombinant Inbred Wheat Lines under Saline Irrigation
Disposal of saline drainage water poses a difficulty in some cropping systems. This study investigated the reuse of such water for irrigating winter-planted spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in theExpand
